  • Biography/ Background

    I was born in Hanoi, Vietnam. After graduating with a Bs. degree in Applied Physics from Hanoi University of Science in 2002 I moved to South Korea to pursue the PhD in Information and Communications from Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), under a prestigious IITA fellowship from the government of South Korea, graduating in 2009. My graduate work focused on the development of fibre-optics devices for applications in fibre sensor, fibre laser and all-optical signal processing. In early 2010 I moved to Edith Cowan University (ECU) in Western Australia. At ECU I brought in complimentary knowledge to the existing researches within the group, initiated a research program in developing fibre-optics sensors for applications in Desalination and seawater-related industries, secured seed fundings and my work at ECU led to a successful major category-1 grant from the Australia Centre of Excellence in Desalination. I joined the Institute for Photonics & Advanced Sensing (IPAS), School of Physical Sciences at the University of Adelaide in 2011, first as an Australian Research Council (ARC) Super Science Fellow leading a project toward development of rapid protein sensing and blood typing platform at crime scenes, and ccurrently as a Chief investigator of a project on the development of tools for in-field surveillance of pathogens.

    My experiences and interests range from fabrication (MCVD, DT) and characterisation of specialty optical fibres to development of fibre devices (grating, sensor, laser, micro-machined fibre etc) for diverse applications in fiber sensors, fiber lasers, all-optical signal processing, biochemical sensing, bio forensics, nano-/micro-engineered optical fibers…
