I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University and a pre-doctoral fellow in the Department of Government at Harvard University. My work received the John T. Williams Dissertation Prize in 2017 from the Society for Political Methodology (for the best dissertation proposal in the area of political methodology). I obtained a B.A. in Liberal Arts from the University of Tokyo in 2015, and also studied at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, as a visiting student in 2013.
I am broadly interested in political methodology and comparative political behavior. My research has focused on spatial and network causal inference and the development of machine learning methods for the social sciences. My work is forthcoming in Journal of the American Statistical Association.
