Darshana is a PhD research fellow at the University of Agder. He completed his BSc in Mechatronics Engineering at AIT university, Thailand in 2015. Then he directly joined to the Big Data research group at Thammasat University, Thailand for his MSc studies and graduated in 2017. His research interests are in Artificial Neural Networks, Data Mining, Optimization, and Operations Research. Currently, at CAIR, he is working on a project which develops a global grid that facilitates real-time compilation, management and analysis of spatio-temporal data.
