Ryo Toyoda - ESR14

Ryo Toyoda is an Early Stage Researcher at the Newcastle University for ETN-Charming Project. He is investigating on how to evaluate adapted situational judgement of employee performance using the gaming environment.
Ryo holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering since April 2013 with Latin Honors from the University of the Philippines Los Baños and holds an Erasmus Mundus Master’s Degree in Membrane Engineering since July 2017 from 3 High Education Institutions: Université de Montpellier (France), University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (Czechia), and University of Twente (Netherlands).
After finishing his Master’s degree, he moved to the Philippines to begin his teaching career. He considered his job in the University of the Philippines as his way of giving back to the community that helped him shape who he is right now. The opportunities and experiences he gained through the University ignited his passion in helping those with talent, knowledge, and perseverance in pursuing their chosen career paths.
He is interested in imbibing the concept of digital technology (e.g. E-games, AR/VR) in chemical engineering education as well as professional skill learning. He believes that the success of this research program has important implications to address global issues of the potential use of digital technology towards effective learning, and integrating these learning experiences to practical scenarios. Hence, he wants to contribute toward those goals.
