My current research aims to investigate approaches to provide information about writing activities of a group writing collaboratively using process mining and text mining techniques.

Vilaythong is from Laos. Currently, he is undertaking his PhD research at School of Information Technologies, University of Sydney. He received a Bachelor degree in Compuber Science from University of Canberra under Australian Agency for International Development Scholarship. He was also awarded a Fulbright scholarship to undertake a Master degree in Computer Science at University of Illinois at Chicago. He has been working in industries in the U.S. and lecturing at the National University of Laos for several years before pursuing his PhD degree.
