Q: Tell us about yourself. Where are you from? What is your program here at Tech?

A: I am from Thailand, and this is my fourth year living in Lubbock. I graduate with my PhD in Industrial Engineering in May 2017. 

Q: What project are you currently working on?

A: I defended my dissertation on March 24th. It focuses on the maximum acceptable frequencies with which to lift light load weights, specifically the maximum acceptable frequencies with which to lift light load weights in the two-knee posture, which is unusual. It also determines the energy expenditure equation for lifting light load weights with high frequencies.

Q: We can’t be graduate students all the time. What do you do in your spare time?

A: When I get a long holiday, I explore a city or a natural place in the U.S. For example, I have visited Washington DC, New York, Los Angeles, Florida, Philadelphia, the Grand Canyon, and Niagara Falls.  When I get a short holiday, I cook my favorite Thai foods and party with my friends.

Q:What brings you to the Graduate Student Writing Center?

A: I needed help editing my writing, so when I read about the Graduate Student Writing Center in Tech Announce and my professor recommended it, I made an appointment at GSWC.  I worked with Dr. Messuri the first time I came, and she recommended that I work with Brian Spreng after that. Brian helped me with my proposal and my dissertation. He is great tutor, and he made many suggestions that helped me to improve my writing.
