Research Interests

  • “Deep-time” paleoclimatology
  • Paleoceanography
  • Stable isotope geochemistry
  • Organic geochemistry
  • Abrupt changes

My research interest is broadly centered around deep-time paleoclimatology (prior to ~2.6 million years ago) as it can extend reliable reconstructions of the ancient earth’s climate into older geological ages to supplement the ice-core-based paleoclimate investigations. I am now particularly interested in establishing a complete past sea surface temperature history for the entire Cenozoic era from deep sea sediments using lipid biomarkers as paleothermometers.

Additional Information

Beside research, I am a Thai Fulbright scholar and an ultra-trail runner. With that being said, I like to spend my time in nature, up and down mountains. Also, I am always keen to learn all cultural experience and share some Thai believe and culture along my academic journey in the United States.
