PhD candidate at the College of Nursing, University of Massachusetts Amherst
My name is Tippawan Srichalerm. I come from Thailand where is located in Southeast Asia. I have been a neonatal nurse for seven years and an experienced nursing clinical instructor for three years. I am now a Ph.D. student at the College of Nursing, UMass Amherst. My research area has focused on neonatal nursing fields, including health promotion in preterm infants and sick newborns. My research training has continued under the mentorship and guidance of Dr. Carrie-Ellen Briere, a professor in the College of Nursing at UMass Amherst. I have also been involved in Dr. Briere’s work and attended her breast milk laboratory. Our lab has examined the correlation between sleep deprivation and human milk composition. My goal is to improve the quality of nursing care in newborn units. My strong intention is to conduct international research while being an expert researcher and an instructor who provides knowledge to future students and nurse practitioners.
