Biography:                                                                                                         

     After earning a B.Eng. in Aerospace Engineering from Kasetsart University in 1998 and gained some experiences in engineering consultant company in Thailand, he joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Kasetsart University as a lecturer and was awarded a scholarship from the French Government for his graduate study. In 2002, he continued his higher education in aeronautics field including master and doctoral degree in Toulouse, France. His research on the design of Micro Air Vehicle obtained the Best Design Award in the International Flight Competition (IMAV2007). After finish his study in 2007, he worked as research engineer in Toulouse, France for another 3 years. He contributed in the design and development of 1st VTOL MAV, MAVion MAV, Satoorn UAV, Roll&Fly MAV (Patented in 2012) and Nano Air Vehicle. He returned to the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Kasetsart University, Bangkok, Thailand in 2010.

Currently, he focused on the development of new Unmanned Air Vehicle such; VTOL UAV, Hybrid UAV, Solar-Cell UAV, and High Altitude Platform UAV.
