After graduating from the Faculty of Education, University of Tokyo, I completed the doctoral course at the university’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, working as a research fellow (DC1) at the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science during the doctoral course. Since 2007, I have been an assistant professor in the Faculty of Letters, Keio University, and became an associate professor in 2015. I hold a PhD (academic) and am a certified public psychologist.
