Biography

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History at University of Wisconsin – Madison. My major is East Asian History with a certificate in Gender and Women’s Studies. I spent a year conducting research in Tokyo through a grant from the Japan Foundation. Currently, I am working on my dissertation which critically examines Japanese imperialism and its haunting legacy from the angle of trauma and disability resulting from wartime sexual violence.
