My research focuses on the notion of ‘human flourishing,’ often construed as a process of optimal wellbeing and realisation of higher potentials. The specific project I am working on explores human flourishing within the context of Japanese higher education institutions, particularly the ways students and academics construct, negotiate, and practice human flourishing in the everyday classroom.
