Senior Product Manager at eureka Inc.

Sawasdee

I was raised and educated in Bangkok, Thailand until the end of my high school years. I studied abroad in the United States, and it was during this time that I began to have interests in international issues. As an undergraduate student, I studied in the School of International Liberal Studies (SILS) of Waseda University in Japan. I majored in liberal studies, where I developed a keen interest in sociology and information technology. It was also in Waseda University, where I decided to continue graduate degree program at the Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies (GSAPS) focusing on ICT issues.

I am currently enrolling in the PhD program under the same school. My ultimate goal in the PhD is to show that games do not necessarily have negative effects on the game players and prove that playing games can contribute to the development of leadership behaviors in individuals.
