DR. UPSORN BOONYANG

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR

IN CHEMISTRY

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.

DR. KOTCHPHAN KANJANA

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR

IN CHEMISTRY

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.
