About Me

Teacher, Researcher, Traveler

Brief Introduction

My name is Tipporn Laohakangvalvit. You can simply call me by my nickname, Tip. I was born and lived in Bangkok and Nonthaburi, Thailand. I enrolled in a 4-year undergraduate program at Computer Engineering Dep., King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) in 2009 to 2012, and continued to Master's program there right after that.

I have moved to Tokyo, Japan, since September 2014 to enroll in the Master+Doctoral program at the Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT). Then, I proceeded to the doctoral program at SIT from 2014. After receiving a Ph.D. in 2018, I pursue my research career as a postdoctoral researcher at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). From Oct 2020, I started my career at SIT both as Assistant Professor. At the same time, I am actively conducting several research to improve my own experience as well as passing on the knowledge to students.

I always find playing musical instrument is a way to relax and twist from tech things into another different world . Piano, flute, and ukulele are my most favorites.

I love traveling, many times, solo. I enjoy taking photos of small things during my trips.
