Laurence studied Japanese at the University of Oxford, where he was awarded a DPhil (No Corrections) in 2017, for research on a set of Shinto liturgies called the Engishiki Norito. His research interests centre on the relationships between form and meaning in texts, particularly poetry and songs. He teaches a range of undergraduate modules in Japanese language and culture at Brookes (see below for a current list). Aside from this, he also retains an affiliation at the Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Oxford, where he has taught since 2017.
