令和3年7月2日、富山県民会館にて、出来田肇富山県生活環境文化部長より、カノワンさんを含む11か国の24名に「富山名誉友好大使」の称号が授与されました。
これは県内に勤務する語学指導助手や留学生を対象に、富山県と世界の友好の懸け橋となってもらうことを目的に、富山県が1989年度から始められた制度です。

カノワンさんは2020年12月から、都市デザイン学部材料デザイン工学科松田研究室にて、国立研究開発法人科学技術振興機構-クレスト(JST-CREST)の研究支援員として「革新的力学機能材料の創出に向けたナノスケール動的挙動と力学特性機構の解明」という課題のアルミニウム合金の研究支援を行っています。

カノワンさんはタイ王国チェンマイ大学の博士課程の学生時代にJSTのさくらサイエンスプランで2度来富し、滞在中に富山大学が大変気に入り、3か月間、特別研究学生として同研究室に滞在した経験があります。
