Naru joined the Department of Geography at King's College London in May 2015 as Reader in Geocomputation and Spatial Analysis. Prior to this, Naru taught at the State University of New York at Buffalo (2003-09), Cardiff University (2009-14), and University of Warwick (2014-15), primarily in the fields of human geography, spatial analysis & GIS, and urban planning.
Naru is trained as an urban planner with a focus on urban and regional analysis. He obtained B.Engineering (1995) and M.Engineering (1997) in Urban Engineering from the University of Tokyo, and a PhD from CASA/Bartlett School of Planning, University College London (2005), where he also held a research position. Naru currently holds a visiting position with Universities of Tokyo and Warwick.
