Hello, I am Lwin Moe. I am currently in Canada, working as a software developer. I am a Mon from Burma. Both of my parents are Mon. So I am 100% Mon.

I was born at the American Baptist Mission Hospital in Moulmein (Mawlamyine), Mon State, Burma (Myanmar). I spent most of my childhood in Mudon, Mon State. I graduated from high school in 1993.

After graduating from high school, I went to Rangoon (Yangon) to study at the Institute of Medicine (2). The school was closed for political reasons in 1996. I then went to the States in 1998 to study at Indiana University-Purdue University in Fort Wayne. I graduated with a degree in Information Systems.

I came back to Burma to teach at the Myanmar Institute of Theology (MIT) at the Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies program. I taught at MIT from December 2002 till December 2004.

In December 2004, I left for Laos to work as a consultant at Digital Divide Data. I worked there for about 5 months and moved to Bangkok. I met Doug Cooper who invited me to work for him at the Center for Research in Computational Linguistics. I also studied at the Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok and got my Master's in Computer Science.

I left Bangkok in August 2009 to study at Indiana University for my Master's in Linguistics, emphasizing computational linguistics. In the summer of 2010, I worked at Linguist List as an intern. I came back to work at LINGUIST List in February, 2011 after getting my M.A. from Indiana University.

I left LINGUIST List and the US at the beginning of 2018 to spend time with my families in Burma. I went to Canada in August 2018 to work.


Ethnic background: Both of my parents are Mon. So I am 100% Mon.
