Research Area

I started with a strong interest in the design and synthesis of polymers that serve as efficient therapeutic vehicles. The research will allow me to push my boundaries of interdisciplinary knowledge in both chemistry and physiology.

About Me:

Where are you from?

Saigon, Vietnam

What is your favorite type of electromagnetic radiation and why?

I particularly favor visible light region over other more powerful types of electromagnetic radiation. Ever since I figured out that the colors I see are not actual 'colors' but only my perception of light at different wavelengths, science has become my most reliable source to understand the world. This greatly influenced my decision to be a scientist.

If you had to eat one type of food for every meal, what would it be?

My friends call me a "beef maniac" because I used to eat beef every day in a month. I don't know if I can still do it but I do love beef. It is always such a cooking challenge for me to try various ways to make the same piece of beef savory in consecutive meals :)
