Research student,


I am currently a PhD student researching about memorialisation in Japanese museums.  I became interested in this area while writing my undergraduate dissertation entitled: ‘Hiroshima’s forgotten voices: hibakusha video testimony and memorialisation’.

I hold a BA in Spanish and Japanese from Cardiff University (2015-2019).  During my time as an undergraduate I spent 5 months on Toyo University’s (Tokyo) exchange programme and 5 months in Argentina teaching English.

I am a member of the British Association for Japanese Studies (BAJS) and the European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS). 



What is the role of digitalisation of witness testimony in memorial museum exhibits in Japan and how does this affect their transmission to future generations?
