Dr Tuan Nguyen is working at the School of Chemical Engineering of the University of Queensland. He has evolved in extensive research activities in the fields of colloid and interface science, and their practical applications in various disciplinary and interdisciplinary contexts, including agriculture, environment, and minerals processing. Dr Nguyen’s research theme is about Organo-Mineral Multiscale Interactions, and is under the mentorship of Professor Simon Biggs. His current work focuses on the correlations between microscopic and molecular structures of polymeric surfaces with their macroscopic interfacial properties of wetting and adhesion, using both experimental and modelling approaches:

  • Synthesis and characterization of novel (block) (co)polymers by RAFT
  • Atomistic/coarse-grained (Dissipative Particle Dynamics) Molecular Dynamics for polymeric and colloidal systems.
