My main academic interest is using computers to assist learning, so I make web-based materials and CD-rom educational software. You can see some of my e-learning materials on this web site. My main web site is Another of my interests is teacher training and I am often invited to give lectures to groups of Japanese teachers of English.

I live in a rural district called Munakata, which is just outside the city of Fukuoka in the south west part of Japan.
