I am originally from Bangkok, Thailand. I received my Sc.B. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Brown University in 2002, and Ph.D., also in Materials Science and Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2006. My Ph.D. thesis was 'Sintering and Joining of Low Temperature Co-Fired Tungsten and Aluminum Oxide'. I am currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow on a project that is concerned with processing and studies of mechanical response of Ni-based foams.
