I was born on
February 28th, 1985 in Vietnam. I am currently a Van Vleck Assistant Professor
at the Department of Mathematics, University of Wisconsin Madison.

I have been carrying
on interdisciplinary research, in collaborating with scientists from

·
The Department of Physics
and The Center for Complex
Quantum Systems (UT Austin)

·
The Department of Aerospace
Engineering and Engineering Mechanics and The Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences
(UT Austin)

·
Department of Biomolecular
Chemistry - School of Medicine
and Public Health (UW Madision)

My research focuses
on the following topics:

**1. ****Main Theme A: Kinetic and Dispersive Equations
- Gas, Fluids and Quantum Physics**

1.1 Quantum Kinetic Theory (The coupling Boltzmann-Schrodinger
system):

i) Kinetic equations
approach: The Cauchy problem (joint work with R. Alonso, I. M. Gamba);
Hydrodynamics limits (joint work with S. Jin); Convergence
to equilibrium (joint work with M. Escobedo);
Positivity (joint work with T. Nguyen)

ii) Dispersive
equations approach: Scattering theory (joint work with A. Soffer)

iii) Dynamical
systems approach: The analog between the global attractor
conjecture (GAC)
in chemical reaction
network and the convergence to equilibrium of quantum kinetic equations: joint
work with G. Craciun

iv) Quantum field
theory approach: The Peletmiskii-Yatchenko derivation: (joint work with L. Reichl)

1.2 Dispersive
waves: Weak turbulence for capillary waves (joint work with T. Nguyen)

1.3 Classical
Kinetic Theory: Convergence to equilibrium; Fokker-Plank equations; Nonlinear
Approximation for Boltzmann equation; Structure Preserving Scheme

**2. ****Main Theme B: Scientific Computing and
Computational Sciences**

2.1
Paralleling
Computing:

2.1.1 Domain Decomposition
Methods, Absorbing Boundary Conditions

2.1.2 Applications to:

- Control Theory

- Kinetic Theory

- Stochastic Differential
Equations and Financial Mathematics

2.2
Hybridized
Discontinuous Galerkin Method

2.3
Approximation
Theory: Wavelet, Splines, Spectral Method

**NEWS: **

I am writing the blog **‘On the Mathematics of
Dispersive Waves and Quantum Gases’**. The blog is devoted to the description
of our recent research results on quantum kinetic and dispersive waves. Please
check out the Introduction and the Table Of
Contents – where a list of all posts is supplied.

I am participating
in the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant Project DYCON, as an External Associate
Member.
