Dr. Tilley’s Ph.D. in Computer Science was awarded in 2004 by the University of Queensland, Australia.  His Ph.D. thesis explored the application of Formal Concept Analysis to increase the usability of Formal Methods.  His Honours research project implemented a platform-independent GUI framework which enabled remote internet access to a spatial database management system.  The work explored distributed systems technologies including RMI and CORBA, and was implemented using Java, C++, JFC (Swing) and Qt.

He joined Payap University as a lecturer in 2008 and is interested in the following areas of research:

  • Formal Concept Analysis,
  • Formal Methods,
  • Software Engineering, and
  • Game Controller Hacking.
