Pete received his Master of Science degree in Analytical Chemistry from UNC-Chapel Hill, working under Prof. Gary Glish to develop a quadrupole ion trap instrument for aerosol analysis. Then he moved to UCLA to pursue a Ph.D. under Prof. Joseph Loo to develop top-down mass spectrometry pipelines to identify and characterize protein-ligand interactions using native-ESI and electron-based dissociation (ExD).

Pete is currently use multi-omics approach, integrating genomics, transcriptomics, immunopeptidomics and proteomics to identify tumor-specific antigens and design personalized immunotherapy treatment for Thai cancer patient.

Besides doing research, Pete is known as a landscape photographer.
