Kayoko H. Murakami
I received my B.A. from Musashi University, Tokyo in 1999, my M.A. in TESL from Saint Michael’s College, Vermont, U.S.A. in 2004, and my Ph.D. in information science from Hokkaido University in 2013. I joined Kanazawa Institute of Technology, Japan from 2004 to 2010 as an assistant professor. I am currently an associate professor in Shibaura Institute of Technology and teaching English to the students who are engineering major.
My current research activities are on text-mining through travel blogs and SNS to analyze foreign tourists' word-of-mouth, and analysis on multilingual websites. Regarding English education, my current research interests include making an effective test to assess students' vocabulary and grammar knowledge and an effective system for self-evaluation.
