She is passionate in research and innovation focusing on water and environmental management. In 2015, Her team “Bangkok Canal SOS” was selected as one of three finalists of Global Student Competition URBAN SOS All System Go and was presented to public at A+D museum in Los Angeles. The project demonstrates the proposal of developing Bangkok’s Canal system to mitigate major city problems such as flood, environmental degradation, and poor transportation system. Furthermore, her graduate thesis work on “Creating Sustainable Future of Mae Kha Canal in Chiang Mai”, Thailand was notified to receive 2016 National ASLA Student Award Honor in Analysis and Planning. The project articulates the application of ecological and sustainable approaches together with intensive site analysis to effectively create design strategies that will enhance and revitalize future of Mae Kha Canal, the most polluted urban canal in the North of Thailand.
