MESSAGE
I was born and raised in Ha Tay, Viet Nam. I graduated with a Master degree in chemistry of nanostructured organic materials from the Université du Sud Toulon-Var, France and the Hanoi University of Natural Sciences, Vietnam. In 2012, I received my PhD degree from the Université du Maine, France under the supervision of Prof. L. Fontaine, Prof. V. Montembault and Dr S. Pascual. My thesis involved elaboration of graft copolymers by combination of ROMP, click chemistry, and RAFT polymerization. Then, I moved to the group of Dr D. Gigmes (Aix-Marseille Université, France) as a post-doctoral fellow working on the amphiphilic copolymers synthesis and characterization of polymers by Dynamic Nuclear Polarization Solid-State NMR. Besides chemistry, my hobbies are hanging out with friends, playing football and ping pong. I also like to travel with friends and family.
