Research

Fields of Interest
My research interests comprise International Relations theory, East Asian regionalism, security in the Asia-Pacific, contemporary maritime affairs in East/Southeast Asia, and Japan’s international relations. My monograph, entitled ‘Japan's Maritime Security Strategy: The Japan Coast Guard and Maritime Outlaws’, is published with Palgrave MacMillan’s Critical Studies of the Asia-Pacific series. The volume explores Japan’s innovative approaches to tackling security threats in East and Southeast Asian waters. I have published a number of refereed journals including International Relations, International Relations of the Asia-Pacific, and The Pacific Review. I am working on a long-term project on Japan’s approach to human security and responsibility to protect.
