Profile Summary

Dr. Piyawattanametha received Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles, USA in 2004. From 2005 to 2007, he was with the Bio-X Program, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA as a senior scientist and later become a research associate in 2009.

Currently, he is with the National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), Pathumthani, Thailand, as a Group Leader of Cancer Imaging Consortium and the Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, Pathumwan, Thailand, as the Director of Advanced Imaging Research (AIR) Center. He co-founded the Global Young Academy (GYA) in 2010 which is an international organization aiming to empower and mobilize young scientists to address issues of particular importance to early career scientists.

He has authored or co-authored over 80 peer-reviewed publications, has contributed 8 book chapters and 4 patents in areas of Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS), Photonics, and Biomedical Imaging. He serves as the technical program chairs and organizing chairs in many international meetings such as the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) in Optical MEMS and Miniaturized Systems of Photonics West Conference, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Optical MEMS and Nanophotonics (OMN), IEEE Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS), IEEE CYBER, and IEEE Nanomedicine (NANOMED). He served as a co-editor of the SPIE Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS. In 2013, He was selected by the World Economic Forum (WEF) to be one of the 40 top young scientists under the age of 40 who plays transformation role in integrating scientific knowledge and technological innovation to improve the state of the world. In 2014, he was chosen to be one of three recipients for the Humboldt Foundation’s Fraunhofer-Bessel Research Award from Germany.
