Jan 10 – Now: Research Fellow at Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge,
Cambridge, UK (with Prof. Alan Windle) and Visiting Researcher, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics,
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA (with Prof. Brian Wardle).
While I remain my position at MIT as a visiting researcher, I have been working for the Macromolecular
Materials Laboratory, University of Cambridge, UK. This laboratory, led by Professor Alan H. Windle, consists of the
Polymer and Nanomaterials Group and the Materials Modeling Group. The Macromolecular Materials Laboratory is
home to a major research effort on carbon nanotubes. My research, supported by the European Space Agency, is
about researching, through experimentation and modeling, the thermal properties of carbon nanotube fibers
synthesized by Gas-phase Chemical Vapour Deposition.
Jan 08 – Dec 09: Postdoctoral Associate, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, USA (with Prof. Brian Wardle).
I have been working for MIT„s Nano-Engineered Composite Aerospace Structures Consortium. The
Consortium‟s focus is to improve the performance of advanced aerospace materials/structures through strategic use
of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) combined with traditional advanced composites to form hybrid architectures.
Research activities: Through experimental and computational work, I have been studying thermal, electrical and
mechanical properties and the degree of CNT alignment of CNT-polymer composites. My duties are: (1) developing
new nano-engineered composites with advanced properties to improve performance of advanced aerospace
structures, (2) scaling up our experimental chemical vapor deposition system, and (3) synthesizing single-walled
CNTs (SWNTs) and multi-walled CNTs (MWNTs) for industrial applications. Besides experimental work, I have
developed computational models to study the electrical and thermal conductivities of CNT–polymer composites. I
developed a random walk simulation to model the effect of interfacial resistance on electron and heat flow in different
orientations of CNTs dispersed in polymers. The effects of SWNT orientation, touching degree, weight fraction, and
thermal boundary resistance on the effective conductivity of composites were quantified. The model is a useful tool
for the prediction of the thermal and electrical conductivity for a wide range of volume fractions of CNTs. The
developed model can be applied to other polymers, solid materials, and potentially even metals.
Teaching activity and professional development: I have been a guest lecturer for two courses on Structural
Mechanics (16.20) for about 60 junior and senior students and Hetergeneous Materials (16.223) for about 10
graduate students at MIT. I have been trained comprehensively as a certified user by top scientists of Harvard
University for using all of the facilities of Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) at Harvard University, such as imaging
and analysis (SEM, TEM, sample preparation), nanofabrication (cleanroom, lithography, STS and Nexx PECVDs,
RIE, metrology and thermal and e-beam evaporators), materials synthesis (FIB, XPS, AFM and micro-CT systems),
and computation (hardware resources and simulation tools dedicated to nanoscience research).
Professional activities: I have cooperated with and supervised other scientists, researchers, graduate students,
and industrial partners. I have expanded my research network through this group work and am a focus point for
collaboration with University of Cambridge, UK, University of Tokyo, Japan, University of Oklahoma, USA, and
Stanford University, USA, on CNT topics. I also host lab visitors and organize meeting workshops, e.g., Future
Nanomaterials: MIT and Tokyo University workshop.
Nov 05 – Nov 07: Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Postdoctoral Fellowship, Department of
Mechanical Engineering, the University of Tokyo, Japan.
My major duties were: (1) conducting my own research project on SWNT-composites, (2) advising and co-
working with graduate and undergraduate students on SWNT-metals, (3) operating, setting up, and maintaining a
chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system to make horizontal SWNTs and VA-SWNTs, (4) mastering analysis
equipment like absorption, standard thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA), gas analysis, Raman and SEM, and (5)
cooperating with visiting professors from all over the world, other labs, and companies on thermal projects.
I clarified, using an in-situ optical absorbance measurement technique, synthesis of vertically aligned SWNT thin
films by alcohol catalytic CVD, which made it possible to control the final film thickness. These vertically-aligned
SWNTs could be detached from the substrates on which they were grown and reattached onto arbitrary solid
surfaces by a simple hot water-assisted process. This allowed many new areas of SWNT applications to be
investigated. I further utilized he optical absorbance technique to study the burning temperature and burning
mechanism of vertically-aligned SWNT films. The use of this simple optical method was shown to be consistent with
the TGA method, but it could only be applied to a very small amount of SWNTs. Experimental results indicated that
burning of the VA-SWNTs was not localized but occurred throughout the film. Furthermore, thick films had a slightly
higher burning temperature than thin films synthesized under the same conditions. This was believed to be due to a
higher bundle density and more uniform distribution of SWNTs within thicker films.
The SWNT was idealized as a quasi-one-dimensional system ideal for studying the physics in molecular-scale
wires and exploring chemically-derived nanostructures for future electronics. The system was essential to understand
the nature of SWNT–metal interaction, an important topic to many fundamental and practical aspects of SWNTs.
Arrays of vertically aligned SWNTs were coated with thin films of Ti, Pd, Au, and Al by evaporative deposition.
Scanning electron microcopy showed the Ti and Pd coatings were continuous or quasi-continuous, while Au and Al
agglomerated into discrete deposits on the SWNT bundles. The stages of metal film formation were studied by
depositing different thicknesses of Pd on top of the vertically aligned SWNTs. Other deposition conditions, such as
substrate temperature and deposition rate, were also optimized for achieving a smoother, more uniform thin film.
Uniformity of the deposition was found to be strongly dependent on the metal species, but increasing both the
deposition rate and substrate temperature improved film smoothness. These findings might be useful regarding both
fundamental and practical aspects of VASWNT applications in thermal and electronic devices.
Jan 04 – Nov 05: Research Associate, School of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and
Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Oklahoma, USA.
The presence of CNTs in composites could change the thermal properties of such materials. The goal of the
project was to develop computational methods that could determine these thermal properties as a function of the
CNT dispersion pattern and the geometric characteristics of the CNTs. I developed random walk simulations of
thermal walkers were developed to study the effect of interfacial resistance on heat flow in randomly dispersed CNT
composites. The adopted algorithm effectively made the thermal conductivity of the nanotubes themselves infinite.
The probability that a walker colliding with a matrix-nanotube interface reflected back into the matrix phase or
crossed into the CNT phase was determined by the thermal boundary Kapitza resistance. The use of “cold” and “hot”
walkers produced a steady state temperature profile that allowed accurate determination of the thermal conductivity.
The effects of the carbon nanotube orientation, aspect ratio, volume fraction, and Kapitza resistance on the
composite effective conductivity were quantified. This project was in collaboration with Prof. Kieran Mullen of the
Department of Physics and Astronomy. The most valuable skills I obtained were: (1) being able to conduct research
independently with critical thinking, (2) mastering Fortran and Mathematica program languages to build on 4+ years
of experience in coding and developing numerical theories, and (3) learning to effective use the national
supercomputer in Illinois, USA.
Sept 03 – Jan 04: Engineering Data Technician, Subsurface Engineering Department, Exxon Mobil Company,
I reviewed all drilling data from over 400 wells of 20 drilling platforms in Bass Strait, Australia to update the
drilling data bank. Then, I used the new Wellview software to convert all drilling data of the old version into the new
one. My work was appreciated much by colleagues because the drilling data bank helped them significantly advance
Oct 01 – Oct 02: Chemical Engineering Researcher, Chemical Engineering Department, Melbourne University
and Sigma company, Queensland, Australia, and Tarong power station, Queensland.
The industrial project was to apply radial flow ion exchange processes in the power station. My major duties
were: (1) designing and building a wedge-shaped rig and its accessories with project consultants, (2) contacting
equipment suppliers to order experimental equipment, (3) cooperating with senior chemical engineers of Sigma
company and senior chemists of Tarong power station to set up a pilot project utilizing automatic control equipment,
such as conductivity, sodium, and chloride quality indicators, to continuously control an ion exchange process, and
(4) conducting experiments, maintaining the pilot project, and monitoring experimental conditions like conductivity,
pressure drop, and flow rate. I learned first-hand the difficulties in bridging the gap between theory and practice,
implementing lab equipment in the field, and how to control the ion exchange process continuously. The teamwork
and industrial experience I obtained were very valuable for my future career.
Nov 99 – Sep 03: Ph.D. study, University of Melbourne, Australia. My Ph.D. project was „Modeling radial ion
exchange process incorporating mass transfer phenomena‟. Advisor: Associate Professor David C. Shallcross,
The project aim was to develop a new technique for radial ion exchange performance to replace traditional
column exchange designs. A model was developed to simulate ion exchange performance within a fixed, annular ion
exchange bed. In the bed, the injected solution flowed radially from the inlet located at the annular bed‟s axis to the
outlet located at the bed‟s periphery. The model considered mass transfer effects and radial dispersion to be a
function of the solution velocity and assumed local equilibrium between the ions in the solution and the exchanger
phases. In this project, models were developed to predict ion exchange performance in a conventional cylindrical bed
as well as a wedge-shaped bed. The predictions made by these models were then tested by comparing them with
experimental data. Radial ion exchange processes have advantages in industrial design over column ion exchange
processes, such as radial exchange having no column height limit. Radial exchange operation capacity was also
greater than the column configuration with the same system configurations and operation conditions. The benefits
and potential applications of radial ion exchange processes in hydrometallurgical, pharmaceutical, waste and water
treatment industries, and petroleum engineering are numerous.
Jul 97 – Nov 99: a lecturer, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HUT), Vietnam.
As I was in the 2% top student group, I was offered to work as a lecturer for The Department of Physico-
Chemical Engineering in July 1997. Besides operating and maintaining the laboratory facilities like gas
chromatography, I assisted 5+ senior students in their minor theses and demonstrated lab experiments of the
physico-chemistry class for 200+ junior students. I also worked with Professor Chuong K. Tran on several research
projects. I developed and designed chemical engineering processes based on local materials in Vietnam, such as
catalyst synthesis, and then optimized the processing conditions to improve the quality of commercial products. Most
of my proposals were adopted and put into practice.
