Chalisa has long been engaging in the disciplines of Gender Studies and Cultural Studies. Majoring in Culture, Society, and Media, she wrote the award-winning Bachelor thesis on the intersections of gender, Orientalism, and nationalism in Thai tourism promotional videos.
Chalisa later became interested in the resurgence of feminist ideas, particularly postfeminism and popular feminism. She therefore explored a Thai feminist campaign on social media within the contexts of postfeminism and popular feminism in her Master dissertation.
Apart from gaining a First-class Bachelor degree and completing her Master study with Distinction, she has so far received a number of academic excellence awards.
Recently, when not working on her PhD project, Chalisa has read articles and attended workshops on anti-racism. This inspired her to host a reading group on anti-Asian racism and feminism in June 2021 for a University PGR-led network called PGR Feminisms.
