My name is Mathis Lohatepanont, and I go by Ken. Originally from Bangkok, Thailand, I am a recent graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. I am currently a researcher at the Thailand Development Research Institute, where I research innovation policy for sustainable development.
I’m passionate about comparative politics and international relations, with a focus on Thailand and East Asia. I am a regular contributor to Thai Enquirer, where I write both about Thai politics and foreign affairs. My work has also been published in the Bangkok Post, Asia Times and openDemocracy, among other outlets. In addition, I’ve independently published a number of projects on Thai history.
