I have finished my Ph.D. in Eleanor's group and am going back to Thailand to be a researcher at the National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) operating under the jurisdiction of the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). After spending four years as a Ph.D. student under Eleanor's supervision, I would like to say that I made the right decision to choose Edinburgh and work with her. I have learnt many valuable things and have very much enjoyed my Ph.D. life. Without Eleanor, I think I would not have been able to achieve my goal. I would like to say thank you to her with my best regards.

My Ph.D. project was concerning using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) nanolithography. The possibility of using a state-of-the-art SPM system to controllably deposit nanoparticles on patterned Si substrates with high positional control has been explored. These nanoparticles have a range of interesting properties and have been characterised by electron microscopy and scanning probe microscopy. The influence of different deposition parameters on the nanoparticle properties was studied.

I am originally from the eastern part of Thailand. I completed my undergraduate studies at the department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 2007. Then, I was awarded with the Royal Thai Government scholarship to pursue my Ph.D. in the field of sensor nanotechnology. I found that my research interests fell into Eleanor's research area of specialisation: nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes. Fortunately I could therefore use the scholarship to complete my Ph.D. under Eleanor's supervison.
