Previous Education:

  • PhD, Illinois State University
  • MS, Mahidol University (Bangkok, Thailand)
  • BS, Chulalongkorn University (Bangkok, Thailand)


My extensive research experience in microbiology ranges from physiology and molecular biology of mold and bacteria at undergraduate and graduate levels, molecular biology of yeast and RNA biology at postdoctoral level (University of Alabama-Birmingham), to molecular virology (University of Wisconsin-Madison and University of Nebraska-Lincoln). I have transitioned from a lab bench to a classroom and have found my passion in teaching. During my twelve years of teaching experience at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I taught microbiology, general biology, and fundamentals of biology to pre-health undergraduate students.
