Postdoctoral fellow at Department of Molecular Biology Section: Group Björn Schröder
6K och 6L, Sjukhusområdet Umeå universitet, 901 87 Umeå

I received PhD in Biochemistry form Mahidol University, Thailand. During my PhD, I had a great opportunity to join the group of Joy Scaria at the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical, South Dakota State University, USA to study gut microbiota of chicken. Then my work focused on isolation, identification, and characterization of the gut bacteria to formulate potential bacterial communities for pathogen control and animal health improvement.

In June 2021, I joined Björn O. Schröder lab as a postdoctoral fellow. I have learned specialized ex vivo methods for mucus measurement in live tissue. My research aims to investigate the effects of casein glycomacropeptides (CGMP) fractions on colonic mucus function and gut microbiota.

Apart from lab life, I really enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing as well as several sports at iksu. Also, I have been an active member of the Umeå Postdoc Society (UPS).
