I am May Kristine Jonson Carlon, or simply, May. I work as a postdoctoral researcher with a Ph.D. in Global Engineering for Development, Environment, and Society from Tokyo Institute of Technology in the Department of Transdisciplinary Science and Engineering under the School of Environment and Society. I work with Professor Jeffrey S. Cross studying educational technology, specifically on improving the online learning experience through the use of metacognitive prompts, adaptive learning, and harvesting of implicit feedback through natural language processing. I started in October 2022 as an online education specialist at Tokyo Tech's Online Content Research and Development section where I had been working as a teaching assistant during my doctoral studies and as a volunteer shortly after. I am also teaching information technology courses at Hosei University's Global and Interdisciplinary Studies.


IPSJ 2023: Inhibiting and Facilitating Factors in the Career Decision-Making Process of Japanese High School Students

In 2022, we applied for a grant to investigate the situation of women in STEM in Japan and the Philippines. Unfortunately, it was not funded. However, we intend to try again, and with the leadership of Professor Yutaro Ohashi at Shibaura Institute of Technology, we had an output for this year's annual meeting of the Information Processing Society of Japan. Professor Ohashi fittingly made this presentation during Japan's Doll Festival.
