Dr. Chinthammit in 2007 graduated from the HIT Lab US at University of Washington in Seattle. His PhD research was in a positioning tracking system for augmented reality applications, particularly for use in Augmented Reality (AR) applications in extreme conditions. His work in his dissertation was awarded a "Best Paper Award" at the IEEE VR 2002 conference and 1 US patent. He currently holds two US patents and a number of top-tier international conferences and journal (Citations on Google Scholar). Dr. Chinthammit has also industrial experiences working with two high-tech start-up companies (bioengineering and photonic) in 2006-2007. In late 2007, he joined the Information and Computer Science department at the University of Hawaii at Manoa as a researcher specialising in AR, before he relocated to Tasmania, Australia to join the newly established HIT Lab Australia in August 2009. Since joining the HIT Lab AU in August 2009, his research interests have expanded to 3D interaction, AR application design, Interactive Surface and User Interface Design.
