About

Koji Lau-Ozawa is a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology. His research focuses on the archaeology of the Japanese Diaspora and the Gila River Incarceration Camp where over 13,000 Japanese Americans, including his grandparents, were held during WWII. Since 2014, Koji has worked in collaboration with the Gila River Indian Community to survey the physical remains of this camp to better understand the ways in which materials shaped and maintained social connections.
