Research Themes

My main research focuses on the chemical and physical characteristics of airborne nanoparticles. My interests cover all the natural and anthropogenic sources, particularly biomass burning including forest fire and agricultural residue burning. I'm very interested in emission inventory from biomass burning in Thailand and Asian countries.
