BANGKOK: APSA is pleased to welcome Dr. Kanokwan “May” Chodchoey as the newest member of the Secretariat. Having begun her role as Deputy Director on January 3, Dr. Kanokwan has a PhD in Biotechnology from Mahidol University, and brings to APSA a wealth of technical experience.
The new Deputy Director will be leading the development and execution of the Special Interest Group and Standing Committee activity for APSA.
In addition to working with governments in the region to strengthen their interaction with the seed industry, May will be forming closer relationships with our National Seed Association members, in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
May will also be managing APSA’s member benefits for plant breeders by overseeing APSA research consortiums, including the World Vegetable Center-APSA consortium and other upcoming project-based endeavors.
Look out for an interview with Dr. Kanokwan in the upcoming edition of Asian Seed Congress, due for publication in February.
