Watthanasak Jeamwatthanachai 

PhD Researcher

PhD researcher, System Development Specialist, Senior Software Developer, Mentor, Teaching assistance

Hall has been working as a researcher at National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) for almost 11 years since mid 2007. Being a researcher, Hall have joined and worked in 3 different research groups. His first career started in the year of 2007 as applied researcher in the field of embedded systems and wireless sensor network in Embedded System Technology Research Group (EST), working on bridge interfacings between hardware and software, communication, and up to high-level interfaces and applications. Later moved to the Industrial Prototype and Product Research group. In this research group, his main research involved with the low-level design and real-time operating system. Meanwhile, I started working a bit on human-computer interaction (HCI). Afterwards, He moved to Speech Processing Technology Research Group (SPT) in the year of 2012 working as a researcher in HCI aspect until now. His research interests are design interface, user experience (UX), sensor fusions, and indoor navigation systems.

Now, he is pursing his PhD at the University of Southampton, he has graduated with MSc in Computer Science specialising in Multiagent systems with the dissertation titled 'Bidding Optimization for Display Advertising under Budget Constraints'. After the graduation, he has joined the Cyber Physical System Research Group as a PhD researcher with the topic titled 'Spatial Representation Framework for Indoor Navigation by Visually Impaired people' whose is related to accessibility, human-computer interaction, and information and knowledge engineering.
