Masters Thesis: Application Of Palaeoflood Sedimentology To Identify Changes To The Fluvial Environments And To Reconstruct Peak Discharges In The Upper Ping River, Chiang Mai
Honours Dissertation:Reconstruction of Discharge from 1558 to 2005 in the Upper Ping River Catchment, Northern Thailand Using Palaeoclimate Proxies (working on publishing it at the moment)
Working Experience: Research Assistant with NUS Tropical Marine Science Institute (2013-2014)
I am interested with palaeoclimate studies and its uses in understanding past climate and hydrological system. In my honours thesis dissertation, I used tree rings index data to reconstruct discharge in the past by understanding the relationship between tree rings with present climate and river flow at the Upper Ping River, Chiang Mai, Thailand.
For my masters thesis, I hope to attain more skills in dendroclimatology such as tree coring and analyzing cores to obtain dated tree rings index. With these skills, I hope to use them to obtain an understanding on the past climate conditions at the Upper Ping River and incorporate this knowledge in existing climate/hydrological prediction models.
