Revising the genus Gomphostemma Wall. ex Benth. and contributing some genera to the Flora of Thailand Lamiaceae treatment.
I am a PhD student at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, funded by the Royal Thai Government. My principal job is to revise the genus Gomphostemma Wall. ex Benth. using morphological characters, phytochemistry and molecular biology. I am also responsible for contributing taxonomic accounts of four genera for the Flora of Thailand Project (Elsholtzia, Gomphostemma, Paraphlomis and Pogostemon).
