Biography

I grew up in Bangkok and finished my undergraduate degree in civil engineering there. I decided to pursue economics because of economic inequality I have seen in Thailand. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate and an instructor at the University of Utah. My research areas are in macroeconomics, history of economic thought, economic policies and economic development. I am working on the Cambridge Capital Theory Controversy and macroeconomic modelling. In the future, I hope to get a professorship to teach, research, and write books.
