About (日本語/中文)

Welcome to my personal research website.

I am an associate professor of East Asian international relations at Indiana University’s Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies, where I am also Founding Director of its 21st Century Japan Politics and Society Initiative (“21JPSI”), and founding organizer of its “East Asia and the World” Speaker Series. Beyond IU, I am a Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, as well as an Associate-in-Research at Harvard University’s Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies and Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies.

I research and teach on East Asian international relations, politics, and diplomacy—with a particular focus on Japan, China, the United States, and Asia-Pacific security affairs. My topical interests are Japanese and Chinese security policy; the U.S.-Japan alliance; U.S. Asia-Pacific strategy; Taiwan; and the rise of China and its impact on East Asia and the world.

My scholarship has been published or is forthcoming in Asia Policy, Asian SurveyThe China Quarterly, International Relations of the Asia-Pacific, International Security, Japanese Journal of Political ScienceJapanese StudiesJournal of Contemporary China, Journal of Japanese Studies, Journal of Strategic Studies, Security Studies, Texas National Security ReviewThe Washington Quarterly, and Washington University Global Studies Law Review, and has been cited widely in global media, including in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Reuters, Foreign Affairs, Associated Press, Bloomberg, Financial Times, Japan Times, Tokyo Shimbun and The Economist. Other recent publications include several book chapters in edited volumes and shorter analytical pieces published in Foreign AffairsForeign Policy, the Asahi Shimbun, and other venues.

I hold a Ph.D. and M.A. in Politics from Princeton University, and a B.A. from Stanford University (with Distinctionwith Honors; and Phi Beta Kappa). In recognition of my research, teaching, and service contributions to Indiana University, in 2019 I was awarded IU’s campus-wide Outstanding Junior Faculty Award.
