Project/Area of Research: Salivary Biomarkers of Fatigue
Supervisor: David Giovannucci
Hometown: Bangkok, Thailand
Education/School: Beloit College, Bachelor of Science, Cellular & Molecular Biology

After living most of my childhood in Bangkok, I came to the United States to earn my bachelor’s degree. I have enjoyed being in the lab ever since. I have worked in several research labs and for a salivary diagnostic company in Pennsylvania. In 2011, I relocated to Toledo with my husband and found a great opportunity in the Neuroscience Department at UT. In my free time, I am always on the lookout for great restaurants and used bookstores.
