meI am an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science and Information Management Program, Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand.  

My AIT Brain Lab works in the area of health, using deep learning, NLP, and computational neuroscience.

We welcome students from all disciplines but those with a huge passion for research.  All Master/Ph.D. students are required to publish at top-tier conferences/journals:  HCI (CHI, UIST),  NLP (ACL, EMNLP),  Brain (Neurocomputing, Journal of Neural Engineering).

I am a recipient of a KAKENHI Young Scientist granta Young Scientist grant by TRF, a National Science and Technology Development Agency Toray Science grant,  and a member of a JST grant project.

I received my Ph.D. and postdoc under the supervision of  XiangshiRenCenter for Human-Engaged Computing, Japan.

I am co-authoring work on  "Human-Engaged Computing" with Xiangshi Ren, a philosophical piece discussing the need for technologies to augment humans for better survivability.  This provides the philosophical ground for my research.
