Work experience
I run the Plant Biophysics Laboratory under the support of the Center for Agricultural Biotechnology. My research group collects data on the physics of the environment, the leaf gas exchange and water potential of mostly Thai perennial plants, which include oil palm, citrus,mango,eucalyptus, mangosteen,salak, paper mulberry, papaya, hot pepper, orchid and sugar cane. We study the mass transport process inside the plants under the concept of soil-atmosphere continuum, trying to understand the underlying processes that limit the growth.
We are interested in solving the bottle-neck problems that limit plant productivity, and to increase the efficiency use of plant production factors, particularly the use of water and fertilizers. We are consulted in the subject of plant-environment interaction and have been providing scientific services for private agricultural sector for over 25 years.
