Ms Ai Thi Diem Nguyen

Ms Ai Thi Diem Nguyen completed her Master of Science in Ferrous Technology in Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology Vietnam. She then completed her Bachelor of Engineering in Materials Technology – Silicate Materials Technology at the Pohang University of Science and Technology, South Korea.

She is studying for a PhD in materials technology within the Steel Research Hub at the University of Wollongong. Her research interests stem from her desire to understand fundamental aspects of ferrous technology. Her current research focuses on the interaction between Basic Oxygen Steelmaking (BOS) slag and refractories with the aim to understand the effects of retained slag on BOS refractory wear. Her research motivation is to contribute to the improvement of resistance of MgO-based refractory to slag corrosion in BOS.
