I was awarded the Royal Thai Government scholarship in 1993 to pursue BS, MS and PhD in Materials Science and Engineering in Japan from 1993-2004. I completed my BS,MS and PhD from University of Tsukuba where I got the Best Doctor thesis award. I also furthered my study as a post-doctoral researcher at University of Tsukuba aftergraduated. After completion of my Post-doctoral program in 2004, I returned to Thailand as a lecturer in Department of Mechanical Engineering at King Mongkut’s Universityof Technology Thonburi (KMUTT). In 2006, I was one of the member who initiated the Biological program for master degree and doctor degree at KMUTT and became one of thecomitte of this program. My main research areas are Smart materials using Shape Memory Alloys for sensor and actuator applications. Another main research is Biomaterialsfor implantation and transplantation. The research aim is to fabricate and design a non-toxic and low cost biomaterials, for example, orthodontic wire, mini screw implpants, etc.In 2008, I became the assistant dean for student affairs in Faculty of Engineering. I worked on student activities and student recruitment. In 2010, I was decided to be theassistant to the President for International affairs, I focus on how to creat the linkage between KMUTT and world-class universities and how to increase the number of internationalstudents in the University.
