R&D Engineer at Sunstar Americas

Sunstar supports me in gaining new skills and expanding my expertise not only in dental science but also in other fields.
Career background

I received my Bachelor's Degree in physics in Bangkok, Thailand. I then completed my MS and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering in Evanston, IL, USA. I joined Sunstar in 2015 as an R&D Engineer, where I utilized my experience in polymers and nanomaterials to industrialize commercial products in water filtration and sensor applications.

Current work

My current work involves researching, engineering and developing new and next-generation products, ensuring they are of the highest quality. In my research work, I evaluate the feasibility of new products, which often requires new analytical techniques. My responsibilities include researching new materials, methods and facilities and sometimes introducing new testing capabilities to the lab. I also work with our international manufacturing suppliers to perfect products and optimize processes.

Working at Sunstar

My colleagues and supervisors are supportive and an integral part of my accomplishments. I have been involved in several projects that have had technical setbacks. With one such project, the innovation I introduced led to superiority over others in the market. I set high standards for my work, which I believe is the key to success in engineering high quality products.

Future goals

I look forward to taking on more responsibilities and am excited to contribute to the success of new products. I want to continue to bring new technology to our R&D sector to advance oral health-related quality of life.
