ITS Course: PhD Transport Studies, 2007

I am currently working for the Department of Highways, Thailand. Here I am involved with the Transport planning for new national highway and motorway links/networks to support Thailand’s economic development and ASEAN Community integration.

I believe my experience at ITS has helped in my present job/career because there are many good examples to be seen in UK and EU that helped me to realise what are considered as the best practices. 

I chose my ITS course and Leeds University because of the great supervisors, Prof. David Watling and Prof. Andrew Daly. I would like to thank both of them again.

My advice for students interested in this course is that ITS is the best place for Transport Studies!
