Research Interests


I am a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University. Through multidisciplinary collaboration with many government agencies and universities, I focus on modeling and quantitative methods that can facilitate adaptive ecosystem-based management framework in commercial fisheries under climate change. My broad scholastic interests include fisheries ecology, population dynamics, and fisheries stock assessments and management. I am also interested in evaluating environmental impacts on spatiotemporal changes in fish distribution, analyzing the effectiveness of fisheries-dependent and fisheries-independent survey programs, and coupled natural and human systems in fisheries. In addition to working as a researcher, I have served as an external reviewer for International Council for the Exploration of the Sea and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. I grew up in Japan, and earned my M.A. in Environmental Policy in 2010 and M.S. in Environmental Science in 2012 from American University in Washington D.C. I earned my Ph.D. in Ecology and Environmental Sciences from University of Maine in 2018. I have worked for UNEP in Jamaica and Antarctic Southern Ocean Coalition in Washington DC. My hobbies include basketball, sci-fi films, and fixed-gear bicycles.
