I specialize in theories of International Politics. Applying these theories to cases in the field of international security, I am examining the factors that can promote international cooperation. The role of non-state actors in IR is also of my research interest. In addition, I have been working on the international relations in Asia-Pacific, such as East Asia, US-Japan, and Canada-Japan relationships.
