Thammasit Vongsetskul (aka Oat) is from Thailand. He is studying mixed polymer/surfactant solutions at the air/liquid interface, with particular emphasis on the effects of the polymer molecular weight for small polymers. This means he gets to measure lots of surface tensions! He has also evinced enthusiasm for studying the rheological properties of his solutions. Oat's future ambitions include setting up his own research group and starting a harem. Whether these are separate ambitions is unclear.

Anyone interested in knowing more about either position can view another picture of Oat at the Wolfson College Ball (with Mauro).
