I have a wide range of interest, but my research focus is in formulation of mathematical models in sciences. I find the ability to predict future behaviors and to understand the mechanisms of natural phenomena using mathematical model fascinating. This is probably the result of my endless curiosity about how nature works and my love for mathematics. Currently, I am collaborating with various groups to work on projects within the realm of mathematical medicine, marine conservation and public health.

Curriculum Vitae (To Come)


I spent the first 15 years of my life in Vietnam before moving to the US in 2008. I graduated from Alhambra high school in 2012, then I moved on to obtain my bachelor degrees in physics and mathematics at Arizona State University (ASU) in 2016. My first major research project is my collaboration with Professor Yang Kuang’s group to quantify the spreading rate of Ebola in 2014-2015. This motivates my current graduate study at ASU. I enjoy learning new scientific and mathematical tools and concepts from others, so I try to facilitate collaboration between groups in different disciplines. Additionally, I love looking at beautiful oceans and the creatures within, which is probably because I lived 15 minutes away from one for 15 years. Thus marine conservation seems like a natural development for me.
