Post Doctoral Researcher



PhD in Biology. University of Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

MS in Biology. University of Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

BS in Biology. Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Research Interests:

My research interests lie in the area of evolutionary developmental biology and developmental genetics. In the Extavour lab, I will work collaboratively with colleagues from the Hejnol, Heisenberg, and Tomancak labs to examine the evolutionary history of intermediate filament proteins and their functions in embryonic development
