Having received my PhD in linguistics from the University of Pennsylvania, I am currently a junior lecturer in linguistics at Chulalongkorn University. My primary research interests lie in clinical linguistics and psycholinguistics, especially on the representations of morphology and semantics.
I have worked with different clinical populations, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and adults with agrammatic aphasia.
Collaborations on developing standardized tests for clinical classifications of language impairments in Thai are more than welcome!
Past Affiliated labs:
The Embick Lab (Experimental study of morphological structure and lexical access)
Language and autism Semantics
Current research projects:
Series of Experiments on Language and Autism
I worked with Thai-speaking children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and typically-developing (TD) children. The experiments include:
Comprehension and Production of Personal Reference Terms
Acoustic Cues and Speech Perception
Lexical Representation of Noun and Verb Compounds
Above is the photo I took of my hometown, Bangkok, Thailand. I did my BA at Faculty of Arts, Chulalongkorn University, right in the heart of Bangkok. I then moved to Europe in 2012 to pursue my master's in clinical linguistics. Since my master's is a joint degree from three universities, I had a chance to live in Germany, Finland, and the Netherlands. Having obtained the degree in 2014, I moved to Philadelphia to start my PhD in linguistics at Penn. More information can be found on my CV.
About my personal self, I love cooking and eating. I especially love Thai food and other kinds of extra spicy food. Apart from my love for food, I also love photographing, traveling, and exposing myself to different cultures. I was also a part of Penn Tír na nÓg Irish Dance club.
