Profile Summary

Dr. Piyawattanametha received Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles, USA in 2004. From 2005 to 2009, he was with the Bio-X Program, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA as a senior scientist and later become a research associate in 2010. From 2010-2014, he worked as a senior research scientist at the National Electronics and Computer Technology Center, Thailand. Currently, he is with the King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Ladkrabang, Thailand as the Director of Advanced Imaging Research (AIR) Center. He has authored or co-authored over 170 peer-reviewed publications, has contributed 6 book chapters and 5 patents in areas of Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS), Photonics, and Biomedical Imaging. His h-index is 26. He is currently serving a conference chair for the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) in MOEMS and Miniaturized Systems XVIII of The Photonics West Conference, California, USA. In 2010, he co-founded and served as an executive member of the Global Young Academy (GYA) based in Berlin, Germany. In 2013, he was selected by the World Economic Forum (WEF), Geneva, Switzerland to be one of the 40 top young scientists under the age of 40. In 2014, he was selected to receive the prestigious Fraunhofer-Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Berlin, Germany. He is the first Thai scientist to receive this prestigious award. In 2015, he was awarded the Newton Fund Researcher Links from the British Council, United Kingdom for his novel optical imaging technique for early cancer detection. In 2017, he was selected to be a fellow in Leaders in Innovation Fellowships (LIF) from The Royal Academy of Engineering, London, United Kingdom.
