Dr. Hoang-Phuong Phan received his PhD degree from the Queensland Micro and Nanotechnology Centre (QMNC), under the supervision of Prof. Dzung Dao & Prof. Nam-Trung Nguyen, and in a strong collaboration with the research group headed by Prof. Sima Dimitrijev at the QMNC, the microelectronic laboratory headed by Prof. Takahiro Namazu at Hyogo University, and Assoc. Prof. Koichi Nakamura at Kyoto University, Japan. His doctoral research focused on the piezoresistive effect in cubic silicon carbide for sensors operating at elevated temperatures. Dr. Phan is currently a Griffith University Postdoctoral Fellow at the QMNC, where his main research interests are the physics of semiconductors, Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) devices, nanotechnologies, and harsh-environment electronics. Dr. Phan has published more than 40 peer-reviewed journal articles (e.g. Scie. Rep., IEEE Electron Device Lett., Appl. Phys. Lett., J. Mater. Chem. C, JMEMS, etc) and several conference papers (e.g. IEEE MEMS, Transducer, APCOT). He also holds two US patents on MEMS pressure sensors and acoustic transmitters. Prior to the current position, Dr. Phan obtained his Bachelor and Master of Engineering degrees from the Mechano-Informatic Department, The University of Tokyo, Japan in 2011 and 2013, respectively. Dr. Phan was a recipient of Japanese Government Scholarships (MEXT) for both undergraduate and postgraduate studies, and the Griffith University postgraduate scholarship, and the international student scholarship for the PhD course. Dr. Phan was awarded the Springer outstanding thesis, the Australian Nanotechnology Network Oversea Fellowship,  and selected to the Australia delegates attending the 23rd World Micromachines Summit in 2017.
