Research Fields My specialty is arithmetic and math education in developing countries and in Japan. More than 10 years ago, I was a Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteer (17-2 science and math teacher) stationed in Zambia. Since then, I have researched math education in Zambia. I have also expanded my research areas to Asian counties, including Nepal and eastern Timor. I have mainly done qualitative studies on children’s readiness and learning achievements, as well as action research and collaborative work with local teachers. Because I have focused on issues in classrooms, I would like to deepen my understanding of Zambian culture and societies and develop my research while considering various factors that would better help with the comprehension of children’s learning experiences.
