I am a lecturer at Tokyo Denki University where I conduct research on curriculum design, student agency and task-based language teaching. My current main project is the development of a teaching methodology around the use of tabletop games. I am also the founder of Kotoba Miners, an online Japanese learning community which used Minecraft as a domain for teaching. Finally, I am a founder of the Japan Game Lab, a research group focused on the pedagogically sound implementation of games into educational contexts.
