Nguyen Van Huy, PhD

Lecturer, Researcher


I finished my PhD in Physics at the University of Warwick with thesis title “Epitaxial growth of Ge buffers on (111) and (110) Si substrates using RP-CVD”. I then carried on doing research in semiconductor materials with the NanoSi group at Warwick Uni until 2015. From 2015-2018, I worked as a Process Development Engineer at IQE.plc in Cardiff.

 I recently joined VNUK Institute of Research and Executive Education in Danang, Vietnam (my hometown) at the end of 2018 after being abroad for 17 years. I hope to contribute to my local community and help build VNUK into an international standard university.
