I studied Chemistry in undergraduate at Kasetsart University, Bangkok, Thailand. Back then, I was curious about the hierarchical SiO2 structure of diatoms (marine algae) and their light trapping properties. I studied the structure as a part of a photocatalyst while I was working in an organic synthesis lab. When I graduated in 2015, my passion for light-materials interaction won and I decided to pursued my master degree at ASU in Materials Science with Fulbright scholarship. My master thesis, under supervision of Dr. Michael Goryll, focused on converting silica diatoms into silicon and directly bonding the silicon diatoms with a substrate, in order to form a solar cell structure. After I got my master degree in 2018, I realized that defects play an important role in performance of solar cell, so I decided to pursue my PhD in DEfECT lab. Outside of the lab, I enjoy reading, nature, foods, music, and cute baby pictures.
