Santi Phithakkitnukoon | Researcher

Santi Phithakkitnukoon

I am a Visiting Member of Staff at Open Lab, but my full-time job is as a Lecturer in Computing at The Open University, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom. My research focuses on mining large-scale digital footprints such as mobile phone CDRs, GPS traces, online social networking data, and sensory data to better understand social behaviour and urban dynamics. My research interests include Social Computing, Pervasive Computing, and Urban Computing.

I am originally from Chiang Mai, Thailand. I received my B.S. and M.S. both in Electrical Engineering in 2003 and 2005 from the Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, USA. In 2009, I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science & Engineering from the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas, USA. In 2010, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the SENSEable City Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, USA. Before joining the Open University in October 2012, I was a Research Associate and a member of the Open Lab, Newcastle University, UK from February 2011. As well as being a Visiting Member of Staff at Newcastle I am also continuing my association with MIT as a Research Affiliate.
