Profile Kazuki Hata, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Design and Data Science at Tokyo City University, Japan. He received a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in 2013 and a PhD from Newcastle University (UK) in 2018. His work has been situated in the areas of Conversation Analysis, Pragmatics, and Interactional Linguistics, dealing primarily with the ‘systematicity’ of social interaction based on empirical findings from audio or video recordings of interaction. In association with a conversation-analytic approach, his current research centres on the normativity of engagement in institutional remote and hybrid (or hyflex) interactions and situated interactional practices in these situations. His work also includes analyses of some language forms formatted in ways incongruent with traditional notions of grammar.
