Dr. Pussana Hirunsit
Dr. Pussana Hirunsit is a researcher at National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) in Thailand, where she has been since 2012. She received a B.E. of chemical engineering from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Thailand in 2001. She received a M.S and her Ph.D of Chemical engineering from Texas A&M University, US in 2010. After that, she was a postdoctoral appointee at Center of nanoscale materials at Argonne National Laboratory, US. Then, she joined NANOTEC as a researcher in nanoscale simulation group. In 2013, she was a research fellow at Research Center for Computational Science, Institute for Molecular Science in Japan, and received Thailand research funding for young researcher.
Dr. Pussana research interest focuses on applying the first principle calculation to determine structural, kinetics, thermodynamics and electronic properties of nanostructured materials and heterogeneous catalysis at atomic scale leading to the development of novel catalytic and energy-related nanostructured materials particularly metal, metal oxides and carbon based materials that are designed to tailor properties.
