Cassian Pirard Ph.D


           I am an Earth & Environment scientist living in Chiang Mai since 2016. Since the early 2000s I have been doing research in universities in Belgium, the Netherlands and Australia on a variety of subjects including volcanoes, radioactive ores, plate tectonics & the deep Earth and even spent some time working on rocks from the Moon & Mars. During that time I also taught and supervised university students in Earth Sciences and in an advising role for university students in other fields (biology, chemistry, physics, arts, medicine).

           Since I moved to Chiang Mai, I became more interested in the education of broader science to children (and adults) with a particular emphasis on natural sciences, using the Chiang Mai environment to illustrate important scientific concepts. My main teaching goal is to provide an introduction to critical and rational thinking based on observations and deduction using the scientific method.
