Tatchamapan Yoskamtorn


Postdoctoral Research Associate


Dr. Tatchamapan Yoskamtorn works with Prof. Edman Tsang at the University of Oxford as a postdoctoral research associate in renewable and sustainable chemistry. She earned her doctorate in inorganic chemistry from the same institute in 2021, focusing on the design and development of functional porous materials for catalysis and sorption-based applications. Her current research includes both fundamental and applied chemistry, with a particular emphasis on the catalytic conversion of thermoplastics to sustainable fuels and chemicals. For an in-depth understanding of the interplay between structure, dynamics, and activity in catalytic materials, advanced integrated analytical techniques such as synchrotron and neutron diffraction, neutron scattering, and Rietveld refinement have been applied extensively in her studies.
