Ph.D.

My areas of research are free-radical biology, toxicology and apoptosis. The major aim of my study is to investigate the cellular mechanisms of potential natural products, chemicals, or toxic substances on cellular oxidative condition.

In 2013, I was awarded a M.Sc. from the Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Purdue University. My research project, supervised by Dr. Tony Hazbun, was mainly focused on chromatin biology of the centromere. 

I currently am a Royal Thai Government Scholarship’s student, so after graduation I will return to my homeland and work for the Thai government as an instructor and researcher in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chulalongkorn University, where I can utilize my toxicology knowledge not only to educate and develop the students who will one day become the future of my country, but also to do research to develop a risk assessment monitoring system for pharmaceutical and chemical products in Thailand.

Previous education:

B.Sc Pharmaceutical Sciences and Technology
Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, 2006
M.Sc, Pharmacology
Purdue University, 2009
Current research description: 

I chose to continue my Ph.D. studies here because I believe that the rigorous training program of study and research with renowned UI professors will provide me a solid foundation, from molecular biology/biochemistry aspects to occupational and industrial aspects, to excel both academically and professionally in the field of toxicology.
