It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.
—Conan Doyle, “A Scandal in Bohemia” in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

My research centers on queer and feminist studies with a focus on sexuality and gender stratification in Japan. At the same time, as a person who likes mathematical methods in the social sciences, one of my areas of interest includes quantitative methodology.

In particular, I am interested in studying the relationship between being a sexual/gender minority and various socioeconomic statuses, as well as public opinion on sexual/gender minorities. Another research interest includes the measurement of sexual/gender minority status for quantitative research. Currently, I am very interested in employing queer and feminist approaches to the quantitative study of sexual/gender minorities, and I seek to bridge the gap between queer and feminist theories and quantitative methodology, both of which I believe are indispensable to the research on sexuality and gender.
