Research Interests

I am currently a graduate student in Electrical Engineering, conducting research in the Center for Advanced Computation and Telecommunications. My interests span across many fields, from renewable energy to autonomous vehicles. Recently, during the Spring semester of 2021 I looked into the Tesla battery pack for a Reliability Engineering course project. Currently I am leading a team of students to co-create with faculty and industry mentors a module on Product Lifecycle Management in the context of Cyber-Physical Systems. During my undergraduate years, I was a member of a three person team that conducted a feasibility study research of Bangkok’s Rapid Mass Transit System. In my earlier career during 2004, I have also conducted research on IPP (Isopropyl Peroxydicarbonate) for a company to ensure the safety of the manufacturing facility.
