Dr Iamsiraroj joined the Alfred Deakin Research Institute in April 2011 and is currently working on the Australian Research Council funded research project entitled 'Supporting Pacific Development'. The research looks at the extent to which 22 of the world's richest countries support development in the Pacific Islands region through their efforts with respect to aid, trade, migration, private investment, security, technology, and environmental sustainability. It will develop an index that will rank these countries on the basis of these efforts. Dr Iamsiraroj works on this project with ADRI Professor Mark McGillivray and Associate Professor Simon Feeny and Dr David Carpenter from Sustineo Pty Ltd.
