NEWS - Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai celebrating the academic success of his undergraduate and doctoral students
Friday 19th July 2019 was a special day for Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai as he celebrated the academic success of his doctoral and undergraduate students at the University of Reading’s graduation ceremony.
Steve Mvalo has successfully earned his EdD degree with his thesis titled ‘Developing Computer Network students’ computational thinking: The case for the use of simulation software’. Steve's research has been co-supervised by Dr. Yota Dimitriadi. Steve said:
“I would like to extend my special gratitude to my two supervisors, Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai and Dr. Yota Dimitriadi, for their wonderful support. These supervisors have been instrumental to the success of my doctorate. There were times that I felt giving up but their emotional and academic support lifted me up. I have had constructive and thought-provoking feedback which have massively shaped my way of thinking. I do not regret at all having done my doctorate studies with the IoE. I feel proud and honoured to be one of the graduates.”
The IoE is currently supervising a total of 63 PhD students and 80 EdD students. (The EdD is a professional doctoral degree in education, with students from around the world who are all working professionals in a field of education.)

Dr. Trakulphadetkrai said: "Both Steve and my undergraduate students have spent the past few years of their lives working very hard to excel in their respective degree. I am very proud of them and wish them every success in their future endeavour!"
