I specialize in literary translation from any era and any medium, ranging from ancient illustrated scrolls to manga and light novels. I was trained at Columbia, U.C. Berkeley, and Harvard in classical Japanese literature, and am comfortable working with both both prose and poetry. I also have extensive experience with academic writing, and have translated academic work in many fields of the humanities and social sciences.

My own academic focuses are the short narrative fiction of the medieval period and historical linguistics, while my contemporary literary interests include science fiction and feminist literature.
