Siripen Pongpaichet

Ph.D. Candidate, Researcher

Siripen Pongpaichet is a PhD candidate in Computer Science at University of California, Irvine. She has been actively working with Professor Ramesh Jain, in Social Life Networks (SLN) lab for 5 years and counting. The fundamental goal of SLNs is to identify people’s needs in a given situation, locate appropriate resources to meet those needs, and connect them efficiently, effectively and promptly. She has been developing a macro situation-modeling platform for SLNs called EventShop. Eventshop is an open source framework that allows for ingestion of different data streams and converts them to a unifying space, time, and thematic (STT) representation. Her current research interests are in event information systems, database management systems, and situation recognition. Her PhD research topic is focused on multi-resolution spatial-temporal analysis across multimedia streams.

She completed her B.Sc in Computer Science with first class honors from Mahidol University, Thailand in 2008. For her research project, she worked on E-Advisory System which is an academic advisory system that simulates an actual human counselor. After graduating, she became a lecturer and software engineer at Mahidol University. By the end of 2009, she came to the United States to pursue her M.S in Computer Science from University of California, Irvine. She earned her M.S in Computer Science in 2011 while working under Professor Michael Carey for her thesis, Monitoring Console for Hyracks Platform. Hyracks Platform is a real time web based console to monitor data parallel platform running data-intensive jobs on a shared-noting cluster.
