I am currently working as a Post Doc researcher at the University of Joensuu in Finland with the EdTech Research Group. I recently completed my PhD at the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick. I was supervised by Dr Meurig Beynon and worked with the Empirical Modelling Research Group and the Education Technology Research Group.
My PhD thesis, entitled Empirical Modelling as a new paradigm for educational technology, was submitted in October 2007 and was accepted without corrections by the examiners on 25th January 2008. The thesis is available online in PDF format.

During the 2006/2007 academic year I tutored the following courses:
I am no longer involved with teaching Thai, but you can find the old resources on my Thai page. For Thai lessons this year, please contact the Thai Society.
My blog only usually gets updated when I am away. You can view my compiled writings from Taiwan (2005) and Thailand (2006, 2005, 2004).
The Buddhist Society at Warwick is active in organising events around campus as well as at the Wood Cottage retreat centre.
When I am at Warwick, you can find me in room CS316 (third floor Computer Science) or:
