Alumni Resnick Graduate Research Fellow
Having experienced various facets of environmental challenges growing up in Thailand, Siraput has long been intrigued by the power of science to shape a more sustainable future for society. After obtaining first-class bachelor and master degrees in physics from the University of Cambridge, Siraput graduated from Caltech with a PhD in Environmental Science and Engineering, with a focus on using remote-sensing data to understand Earth systems. His research applied simulations and machine learning techniques in combination with real observational airborne methane retrieval imagery to identify and quantify point-source methane emissions over California. His work could open a path toward automated methane emissions monitoring from satellite data, and may help to better constrain the distribution of regional and local methane emission sources across the globe. Siraput's interests also include monsoon dynamics and variations.
Siraput is currently a a data scientist at Robinhood.
