Keiko is interested in Media and Technology Studies and Cultural Studies. Her work investigates new media technology and its sociocultural significance in the context of Japanese language and culture, which touches on the intersection of public and private, social and intimate, human and nonhuman. Her current research projects focus on social media bot programs that converse with people, as well as short-range wifi games where people physically close together have limited interaction with one another.
