I chose to study in the Centre for Risk Research because the group contains scholars from various disciplines and this helps when tackling problems in a real world context. I really enjoy the friendly environment and working with knowledgeable supervisors. Both these aspects have enabled me to explore my research topic thoroughly

I am a PhD student in the Centre for Risk Research, University of Southampton, under the supervision of Professor Ming-Chien Sung and Professor Johnnie Johnson. My research is mainly focused on behavioural finance in spread-trading markets. In particular, I am exploring the degree to which financial traders' behavior is driven by non-fundamental factors. I am also examining the impacts of a range of market price-related factors on traders' tendency to behave more irrationally than the efficient market hypothesis might suggest. I was awarded a MSc in International Financial Markets in 2010. Prior to my MSc, I worked in the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET).
