I am a social historian of science, specialising in the history of Anglo-Japanese relations in scientific and technical fields.  My other research topics include the history of science in post-Victorian Britain and post-Meiji Japan, higher education, laboratory designs, sites of scientific practice and international cooperation in science from the 19th up to the 21st century. I have also been working on the history of the Institute for Molecular Science (IMS, Okazaki City, Aichi prefecture) since 2007 and am interested in molecular science, physical chemistry, and chemical physics in Japan after the Second World War.  Recent appointments to positions based in Aichi Prefecture have brought me to the local history of science and technology in the Chubu Region, especially in Inuyama (famous for a castle) and surrounding areas.
