Thotsaporn "Aek" Thanatipanonda

Welcome to my homepage! I decided to make a website to keep in touch with the outside world (i.e., friends, students). I graduated from Math department at Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA in 2008 under supervision of the great Doron Zeilberger. Now I am working at Mahidol University, International College in Thailand. If you want to get a feeling about who I am, just read on.
