About

Welcome to the site!

My first name is Sachie (phonetically Satchié). "Sachi" means happiness in Japanese. "Sachi means truth in our language," says my Pakistani friend. French people pronounce my name like ... il faut que vous "sachiez" (to know). Indeed, I'm curious. "Oh, brother! Sachi means râleuse" - a complainer - in French, another friend says. I may be one of them sometimes and wish to be another. "Getting Sachie" mainly means "understanding" myself.

I am an Asian, capability theorist, eResearch supporter, sociologist, translator, mixture of three cultures (Japan, EU, US), citizen of polyglot Luxembourg, feminist, jogger, open source believer, woman, etc.

I am also a co-founder of social-issues.org (Luxembourg-based), a collaborative online community platform for social scientific research, through which I promote eSocial Sciences and collective modeling of social phenomena such as capability expansion, inequalities, and well-being.
