     Sureeporn is a senior lecturer at Chiang Mai University. She received her PhD in Physiotherapy from The University of Queensland, Australia in 2009. Her research focuses on the evaluation and management of neck pain and cervicogenic headache. She leads a number of studies to better understand the musculoskeletal and sensorimotor impairments associated with neck pain and headache and how these impairments impact on an individual's function, physical activity and quality of life. She also conducts clinical trials to investigate the efficacy of physiotherapy treatment methods designed to address these impairments.

     Sureeporn has an extensive role in the teaching and supervision of the postgraduate research students at Chiang Mai University. She has delivered numerous hands-on clinical workshops on management of neck pain in Thailand. She has also been an invited speaker at national conferences and workshops in the area of neck pain, headache and dizziness.
