I obtained a B.S. in Biotechnology at International University – Ho Chi Minh National University, Vietnam. My undergraduate research focused on microalgal cultivation, application, and harmful algal blooms (HABs) in Vietnamese waters. With my Ph.D., I hope to have a better understanding of phytoplankton physiological ecology, through advanced data analysis, to help forecast and mitigate algal blooms. In my free time, you can find me at the gym, on the basketball court, or at the swimming pool.
