PERSONAL

I also have other interests including graphics design, presentation design, web design, online learning design, and server administration.

Graphics & Presentation Design

I have been interested in graphics and presentation design since I was an undergraduate student. I am most good a PR media design such as posters, brochures, and book covers. I have also been invited to lecture on the design for research presentation to school students and researchers.

Online Learning Design

I got an excellent chance from the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science Chulalongkorn University to build online learning for  Stereochemistry Lecture Series. This lesson is used in organic chemistry classes for undergraduate students. The instructional material includes videos and interactive activities.

Server Administration

I also have been interested in server administration for computational science research. In basic, I have used CentOS operating system and Slurm job scheduler for operation and management. For more detail, you can visit my GitHub for the setup instruction.
