Mr Duy Le completed his MPhil program at the University of Newcastle, Australia, with a thesis entitled University Students’ Mental Health in Australia and Vietnam: The Role of Attachment Style and Social Integration. His research focuses on mental health and contributory factors among young adults and university students.

He is interested in the impact of intrapersonal factors (e.g., attachment style) and social relationships on individual's well-being and how this impact is different between people from proposedly individualistic and collectivistic societies (e.g., Australia and Vietnam). Mr Duy Le’s career has focused on three components of the psychology profession – practice, research and teaching, starting in 2014 when he first became a lecturer at Hoa Sen University.
