My name is Duangnapa Kiriwan, and I have been working as a research assistant over four years under the supervision of Assoc.Prof.Dr. Kiattawee Choowongkomon. I finished a Bachelor's degree in biochemistry from Burapha University in Thailand and then a Master's degree in genetic engineering and bioinformatics from Kasetsart University in 2021. I've authored 13 papers in peer-reviewed journals that have been cited in ISI Web of Science/Scopus (2 as first author, 11 as co-author). My research interests include computer-assisted drug design Molecular modelling, Molecular docking and Molecular dynamics simulation and AI-algorithm involved inhibitors design.
