Brief About

Yoshito Kawabata is an associate professor with a background in developmental psychology. He received a B.A. and a M.A. in psychology from The University of Oregon and a Ph. D in Child Psychology from Institute of Child Development, The University of Minnesota.

Yoshi’s research interest focuses on interpersonal relationships and psychopathology and the roles of contextual factors such as schools, neighborhoods, and cultures on these domains.

He is particularly interested in examining risk and protective factors that may influence developmental processes involving parenting, peer relationships, and forms of psychopathology (i.e., anxiety, depression, and aggression) with a cross-cultural and ethnically diverse sample. In another line of research, Yoshi uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative data and analyzes how and why children and adolescents accept or reject intergroup contact or cross-ethnic friendships.

He has supervised undergraduate and graduate students with their thesis and provided considerable support for research and writing. He has enjoyed these mentoring experiences and is excited to work with students at University of Guam.

Brief About

Irena Keckes was born in Croatia, where she earned a BA in art education at the Academy of Fine Arts, University of Zagreb (2000).  She earned an MFA in printmaking at Tokyo University of the Arts (2005).  Irena has also conducted the first PhD with Creative practice at Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland (2011-2015). 

Integrating theory and practice has been a key element to her research through which she has been exploring connections between eco-Buddhism and printmaking, extended forms of print, embodied ways of knowing, and the art/craft relationship.

Irena’s artwork has been exhibited internationally in numerous group and independent exhibitions. She presented her research at the IMPACT 8 International Printmaking Conference in Scotland (2013), the 2nd International Mokuhanga Conference in Japan (2014), and the 4th International Printmaking Workshop and Symposium at the University of Auckland (2015).

Her academic papers and an artwork have been accepted by the upcoming IMPACT 9 International Printmaking Conference in China. Living in diverse places such as Europe, Japan, California, and New Zealand has informed Irena’s practice and teaching. Her art has been inspired by a strong desire to work in the media of print, in particular within the fields of contemporary and ecologically oriented woodcut printmaking.
