Nitchakan was born in Khon Kaen, Thailand. She came to Canada for secondary school and university. She joined the Early Detection Research Group in the summer of 2022 to work on the data analysis pipeline. She has always been interested in working and doing research in the medical-related field but never would have thought about working on the technological side of it. Nitchakan is excited to join the Early Detection Research Group. She is eager to learn about the construction of a data pipeline and contribute to something that could benefit others. Unfortunately, Nitchakan is not much of a winter person  and most of her hobbies revolve around the summer which includes anything from scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, trekking to mountain biking.
