DR. PHIMPHAKA HARDING
Head of FunTech
My research interests are in designing and synthesis molecular magnetic materials. Recently, I expand my research interest to the molecular junction fabrication toward molecular electronic devices for high density memory and molecular sensors for medical diagnose.
DR. DAVID J. HARDING
Leader of Molecular Design & Multifunctional Magnetic Materials Lab
My research interests are in the discovery of new materials with designed structural, optical and magnetic properties for molecular electronics. There are three areas of interest spin crossover materials, single molecule magnets and crystal engineering.
DR. UPSORN BOONYANG
Leader of Porous and 2D Materials Lab
My research interests are in developing functional nano porous materials. Recently, functional porous materials with hierarchically pore, have developed a range of novel techniques to fabricate aligned porous and hierarchically porous materials, and nanostructures. The great challenge is to control the hierarchically meso-, macroporous materials with individual pore size, porous structures, and functionalities for various applications such as drug delivery, protein purification and water treatment.

DR. PIYALUK NURERK
LECTURER IN CHEMISTRY
My research interest is focused on development and application of miniaturized sample preparation techniques and optosensor for environmental and food analysis. I intend to apply porous materials and nanomaterials as the adsorbents for the extraction and preconcentration of trace organic contaminants coupled to chromatography and develop selectively fluorometric optosensor based quantum dots for the determination of trace organic contaminants in environment and food.
Leader of Permanent Magnetic Materials Lab
Developing new forms of permanent magnets of varying sizes and shapes without rare-earth elements. We will together explore new ferromagnetic materials and turn them into composites compatible with the additive manufacturing.
Leader of PEwave Lab
My research interest are in the effects of defects on the electronic and optical properties in semiconductors, 2D materials, and nanoparticles by using density functional theory (DFT). The research topics include the development of photocatalysts for anti-microorganism and water splitting for hydrogen production as well as the identification of the origin of colors in gemstones.
DR. SUJITTRA POORAHONG
My research interests span across the fields of the interface between surface science, materials chemistry, electrochemistry, and nanoscience. I aim to develop novel nanomaterials for the next generation of electrochemical sensors and biosensors, energy conversion and storage. The projects often encompass synthesis, and characterization by X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, spectroscopy of 2D and 3 D nanomaterials with a particular application.
DR. KOTCHPHAN KANJANA
My research interests center around the development and applications of biomass-derived carbon-based composite materials in energy storage technologies. I am particularly interested in green chemistry. Therefore, the synthesis methods mainly rely on radiation processing along with facile chemical and physical activations. Based on the well-designed process, the textural, chemical and electronic properties of the materials can be modified to best serve the applications.
