Hello! My name is Ivy and I'm currently a senior at Ruamrudee International School. I am the Team Captain for Thailand-RIS this year and this is my second year of iGEM! As someone who is passionate about biology, iGEM has enabled me to explore and dive deeper into the subject, especially regarding synthetic biology. I have enjoyed working on iGEM 2023 this year in the various groups that I'm involved in and I'm excited to present our work and meet new people at the Jamboree in Paris!
Hi, my name is Miu. I'm a junior at Ruamrudee International school and a Wet Lab Co-Leader and Design Leader. As someone who has always been passionate about art and consistently intrigued by biology, iGEM has become the perfect outlet for my ambitions. Exploring synthetic biology in Chulalongkorn's lab and creating art to represent our team has been an incredibly gratifying privilege and my experiences so far have taught me many new things. I hope to learn even more at the Jamboree in Paris!
Hello everyone! My name is Gunn and I'm a junior at Ruamrudee International School. I am both one of the team leaders of Wet Lab and Human Practices of Thailand-RIS. As someone with a keen interest in biology, I am so honored and grateful to be a part of this team. Participating in labs while also exploring my interests in the social sciences through Human Practices has really ticked my box. I especially loved organizing and leading the elementary school workshop, where we led the kids through fun activities related to our project. This is my first year in iGEM and I'm so excited to present what our team has done at the Jamboree!
Wassup! I'm Kaka, currently a junior at Ruamrudee International School. I enjoy coding and anime, but I also like to touch grass and swim. This is my second year on the Thailand-RIS iGEM team.

Thailand-RIS extends our greatest gratitude to Chulalongkorn University and its esteemed professors for generously allowing us to utilize their lab and resources.
Dr. Teerapong Buaboocha is an associate professor at Chulalongkorn University. He received his Bachelor of Sciences from Chulalongkorn University and his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. His research area is in biochemistry and plant biology. Team Thailand-RIS would like to sincerely thank Dr. Teerapong Buaboocha for his guidance with our project.
Dr. Supaart Sirikantaramas is an associate professor at Chulalongkorn University. He received a Bachelor of Sciences in Biochemistry from Chulalongkorn University and received his Master of Sciences and Ph.D. from Kyushu University, Japan in Biology and Pharmaceutical Science respectively. Team Thailand-RIS would like to sincerely thank Dr. Supaart Sirikantaramas for his guidance with our project.
Miss Kittiya Tantisuwanichkul, referred to as “Gift”, received her bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and Sciences from Chulalongkorn University, and is currently a PhD student in Biochemistry and Sciences at Chulalongkorn University. Something she really enjoys about conducting research is that research helps her understand things that she is interested in, and understand why things are the way that they are. Her passion in research is what motivated her to continue her studies as a PhD student. Team Thailand-RIS is immensely grateful for the colossal amount of support we have received from Miss Gift and her team.
Halo! My name is Adhit, I am a postdoc researcher from Indonesia, and I am currently working at Lab 708, the Center of Excellence in Molecular Crops, Faculty of Science, Chulalongkorn University. I have been so into plant biology since I was elementary school. Back then, I was doing experiments on the effects of salt on the mung bean, and I cannot believe that this plant once again became one of my specimens in this postdoctoral project! I started my journey at Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia, where I majored in biology for my BSc, and I was a member of the Plant Science and Biotechnology research group. Then I continued for MSc at Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia, where I focused on plant breeding and genetics. After that, I took an odd detour where I studied biomechanics and biomimetics for my PhD in Åbo Akademi University, Finland, and here, I learned so much working with molecular modelling. In Indonesia, I was once a cram school biology teacher for my freelance job, where I love to share my molecular biology enthusiasm to my students, and I am also one of the advisory boards of Synthetic Biology Indonesia (Synbio ID). I love working with plant bioinformatics for multi-omics analysis, because this way, I can dive into plant's awesome molecular machinery and learn something new. For Thailand-RIS, I am happy to serve as the advisor to Ms. Nicole Sabet and enjoy teaching everyone with the bioinformatics analysis (dry lab).
Dr. Gholamreza Khaksar, referred to as “Chris”, is a senior post-doctoral fellow at the Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Science, Chulalongkorn University. He received his BSc in Fishery engineering from Gorgan University of Agricultural Sciences, Iran in 2007. Then, he pursued his graduate study and obtained his PhD in Biotechnology (international program) from King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), Thailand in 2018. Since then, he has been working as a postdoctoral fellow. His research interests engage in applying multi-omics approaches (genomes, transcriptomes, metabolomes, hormonome, and interactome) to gain a better understanding of the molecular mechanism underlying post-harvest ripening of climacteric fruit and plant-bacteria interactions for enhancing biotic/abiotic stress tolerance. Team Thailand-RIS is extremely thankful for his assistance, which has been instrumental to the dry lab portion of our project.
Miss Poorichaya Singcha, referred to as “Ball”, received her bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and Sciences from Chulalongkorn University, and is currently a Masters student in Biochemistry and Sciences at Chulalongkorn University. Her love for sciences started from her love of nature and the environment, and from watching various documentaries. Science and research helps him understand things better, and inquire. Team Thailand-RIS is very grateful for Miss Ball and her team for their support.
Miss Sudarat Kasemcholathan, referred to as “Cake”, received her Bachelor of Science (Biology) and Master of Science (Biotechnology) from Naresuan University, and is currently a PhD Student in Biotechnology at Chulalongkorn University. She has also been the recipient of the Science Achievement Scholarship since 2013. At the age of fourteen, while her house was being renovated, she saw chemical names that she had learnt in class on labels on paint buckets. She then realized that science is all around us, and she knew that she wanted to study science from then on. Every time she conducts research, the excitement of discovery and discussion has never left her. She is interested in molecular mechanisms of floral development and carotenoid metabolism, specifically the study of diversity and evolution. Team Thailand-RIS is very grateful for Miss Cake and her team for their support.
Thailand-RIS is making its third appearance at iGEM! With a growing and more diverse team, we have been working hard to build capacity across grade levels and embrace the new and adjusted aspects of the competition. I am continually impressed with the level of independence that our team members demonstrate to execute such a high level project and to work with community members both in and outside of RIS. My main role as adviser is to support the team leaders with their plans, offer guidance during the ups and downs and to ensure smooth and safe travel to the Jamboree. As with our previous two teams, we have set our sights high but are focused primarily on learning from this experience and seeing where we can make an impact in the community. When I am not working with the team, I can be found teaching Biology, coordinating our IB Diploma Program and spending time with my family.
Bonjour, Sawadee krub. My Name is Olivier Fernandez. I am a teacher at Ruamrudee International School, Bangkok - Thailand. I am helping and assisting my biology colleague and our Thailand-RIS iGEM 2023 to Paris. Looking forward to a wonderful Jamboree and learning experience for our students in Paris.
