Educational Background

  1. D.Eng. Hydraulic/Coastal, Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand, 1987

Research Interests

My research focuses in the area of numerical computation in sea and coastal area including flood propagation using developed computer programs at AIT. Application in solving urban drainage problem using both engineering and management approaches is one of my interests. By collaboration with Dr. Ole Mark from DHI, the on-line urban flood warning system at Sukumvit , Bangkok , Thailand providing useful information in daily life during rainy season are disseminated in Improvement of hydraulic design using physical hydraulic model test in hydropower project is a sponsor research topic that has been paid attention from the international consultant companies. AIT has been involved in a number of hydropower development projects in Lao and Myanmar and improvement in design of intake, diversion tunnel, riparian outlet, energy dissipater, spillway and head pond have been successfully proposed from the research finding and accepted .
