Dr Vi Khanh Truong
Dr Vi Khanh Truong completed PhD in Nano biotechnology at Swinburne University of Technology, Australia in 2012. After his PhD, he commenced a postdoctoral position working with the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Polymers, where his focus will be the development of novel biopolymers to assist sustainable agricultural development in Australia.
Dr Vi Khanh Truong is a surface chemist with extensive experiences in advanced techniques for both the fabrication and characterisation of smart and functional materials. Also, he has strong background in understanding the interactions between cells and nanostructured materials. Based on his expertise he will focus on investigating the relationship between the surface nanostructures and their biocidal behaviour against fungal cells. His general research interests are design antimicrobial nanomaterials, nanofabrication, Nano-characterisation and cell-nanomaterial interactions.
Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Steel Research Hub, aiming to design and characterize mechano-fungicidal surfaces.
