Resarch Interests: Cultural anthropology, psychology of emotion, anthropology for affective robotics, Japan

I am a cultural anthropologist currently working on problems of emotion modeling in affect-sensitive software, social robots, and artificial emotional intelligence. Project details can be found here: www.modelemotion.org. I also explore problematizations of affect in popular media, public broadcasting, and cultural policy. My geographic focus is on Japan, with additional field sites in Germany, the UK, and the United States.
