Happy to share that I’ve received a joint Award with my research collaborator Prawit Thainiyom from the USC Diploma in Innovation program. This program awards grants to researchers working on interdisciplinary projects that seek to bring creative solutions to global problems. The focus group study of the “Land of Smiles” production in Chiangmai, Thailand — happening December 12th- 15th, 2013– will be partially funded by this grant. For more info on our upcoming production, visit the Gate Theater Group‘s website!
