Bio I am Associate Professor at the College of Asia Pacific Studies, Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (Beppu, Japan), where I teach Development Studies, Public Policy, Disasters, and International Relations. My main interest is in global governance and the practice of human security, emphasizing international cooperation and humanitarian crises (disasters, climate change adaptation, forced displacement, and pandemics). Major recent projects include research on (1) human security norms and perceptions in the ASEAN+3, (2) crisis management beyond the humanitarian-development nexus, and (3) the “global south” and non-Western humanitarianism. I worked for five years (2013-2018) as a Research Fellow for the Japan International Cooperation Agency Research Institute. I was part of a panel discussion at the United Nations on human security operationalization in 2013 and co-authored background papers for 2014, 2016, 2020, and 2022 UNDP’s Human Development Report Office reports. I am now writing about humanitarian institutions in Colombia, aiming to compare Latin America and East Asia in the near future.
