  • PhD (Aerospace Engineering), Cornell University (USA), 2003.
  • MSc & DIC (Computational Fluid Dynamics & Structural Mechanics), Imperial College London (UK), 1998.
  • BEng (Mechanical Engineering, Hons), Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), 1997.



       After earning a B.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering from Chulalongkorn University in 1997, he joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Kasetsart University as a lecturer and was awarded a scholarship from the Royal Thai Government for his graduate study. He received his M.Sc. in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Structural Mechanics from the Department of Aeronautics, Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (now Imperial College London) in 1998 and his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace EngineeringCornell University in 2003. Under the supervision of John Lumley, his doctoral research focused on the development of proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) in Squire's coordinate system and low-dimensional models for turbulence channel. He returned to the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Kasetsart University in 2003. In 2004, he was appointed as a postdoctoral research associate in Clancy Rowley's research group at School of Mechanical and Aerospace EngineeringPrinceton University. His research at Princeton centered on the development of model-based control of oscillating cavity flows using the POD and low-dimensional Galerkin models. He returned to Kasetsart University in 2005 and continued his work in the areas of aerodynamics, fluid dynamics and flow control.
