Aim Sinpeng

I'm a PhD candidate in political science at the University of British Columbia. My dissertation looks at Thailand's recent mass movements, the Red Shirts and the Yellow Shirts. I blog on Thai politics on New Mandala and write for Thailand's popular independent news, Prachatai (English version). In my free time I hike, travel, help others and learn a new language.
