About

I completed a Bachelor of Environmental Engineering in Vietnam in 2009; Master of Environmental Management in Australia in 2015; and Ph.D in Geography and Mathematics in New Zealand in 2022.

Research Interests

I am interested in using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to examine the environmental fluid flow to support environmental management. My previous Ph.D research examined the wind flow dynamics over the coastal sand dunes and implications for sand transport and dune evolution. My postdoctoral research examines the water flow and oxygen through the innovative designs of salmon cages to provide healthy habitat for open ocean aquaculture.
