Teaching Experiences

The fundamental courses I taught in the Informatics Department are related to topics such as introduction to informatics engineering, operating systems, computer networks, human and computer interactions, and the development of web and mobile-based services. Start from 2018, I taught some new topics such as design thinking and creativity, machine learning, and natural language processing.

Fellowship Experiences

In 2012 I got a valuable opportunity from the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia as a fellow. This program gives me the opportunity to stay for one semester at one university in the US and one semester at one university in Asia. On placement in the US, I had the opportunity to stay at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, from January to May 2013. While in placement in Asia, I stayed at Yonsei University in Sinchon, Seoul, from March to May 2014. This program provides an opportunity for me to learn many things while there, both in terms of academics and ICT governance at the university.
