I have been working at the Department of Corrections as a psychologist for 7 years. My varied experiences include psychological treatment planning for drug addicts, designing prisons’ procedures regarding the mental health law for detainees who suffer from mental illness and are incompetent to stand trial, conducting psychological screening and providing individual or group counseling to female prisoners, providing legal opinions for the works of the Penological Operation Division, and so forth. As a person who is a part of the Thai criminal justice system, I am interested in law and how the law provides justice to everyone.

According to recent social changes, crimes in the society have transformed due to the people’s behaviors. Law and legislation ought to be amended to respond to all acts of people, so that I am interested in criminology and criminal justice system in response to new crimes which result from the social factors besides human’s deviance that I had learnt in the field of psychology.

The Criminology and Criminal Justice Administration Program at Chulalongkorn University is my top choice when thinking to pursue my PhD. The faculty members and academic resources at the Faculty of Political Science are of a high quality and ranking. I expect that the program will sharpen my research and academic knowledge and skills to support my career path at the Department of Corrections and academic career in the future.
