PROFILE SUMMARY 
 
Dr. Sirin Nitinawarat obtained the B.S.E.E. degree from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, with first class honors, and the M.S.E.E. degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland, College Park, USA.  He was a postdoctoral research associate at the Coordinated Science Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL, USA.

   
He then turned his career to the industry working as a senior systems engineer at Qualcomm Technologies, San Diego, California, USA, where he helped invented network technologies for cutting-edge smartphones for three years.
   
He then returned to Thailand as a lecturer at the International School of Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University. 

His current research interests are on data science, digital transformations, information security, information theory, public health, health and wellness, telemedicine, telecommunication and signal processing.

I am looking for talented and enthusiastic Ph.D. students/postdocs with a lifelong learning mind. I am also look for eager ISE students to start doing work for their projects earlier than only in the last year.  Please reach out by email.
