Anh Tue Nguyen

School: School of School Science, Engineering, & Technology
Department: Biosciences, Food Tech and Nutrition
Position: Lecturer
Location: RMIT Saigon South Campus

Anh received his Ph.D. in University of Arkansas-USA under supervision of professor Colin D. Heyes. His Ph.D.’projects focused on synthesis and application of quantum dots in super-resolution imaging. Anh had one year as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California at Merced-USA, where he joined a project for application of quantum dots in display technology.

His current roles including teaching chemistry for undergraduates and graduates, and his research focuses on carbon quantum dots and their applications in catalysis and bio-sensing.
