Akkanut is a Ph.D. candidate in Thai Studies and a researcher at the Institute of Asian Studies, Chulalongkorn University. His area of research expertise covers the digital economy, especially the platform economy and its social impacts. During the Covid-19 pandemic, his research on working conditions and social protection of food delivery platform workers revealed how platform companies exploited most of the stakeholders in the ecosystem, especially the workers. He then started his community-based delivery platform called Tamsang-Tamsong, aiming for an alternative business model that is fair for everyone. Tamsang-Tamsong adopts the Social and Solidarity Economy model to create a multi-stakeholders cooperative that owns and operates for the benefit of all stakeholders in the ecosystem. Currently, Tamsang-Tamsong is operating in several areas of Thailand.
