About Me

As an individual who is intrigued by how people and technology intertwine, I have developed interests in UX Design, Visual Analytics and Game Design. My interests take me everywhere in the scope of HCI from designing graphical user interfaces for mobile apps to exploring new algorithms to support user definable graph layout in visual analytics. I have shaped myself into a self-diciplined person capable of working well independently or in a team.

Born and raised in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, I speak fluent Khmer and English. I moved to Vancouver, Canada after high school in 2009 to pursue further education with an ambition to get a Ph.D.. My ambition is inspired by my parents who value knowledge and push me toward that path.
