Biography

Dr David (Hong-Duc) Pham was awarded a PhD by the Queensland University of Technology. His expertise is in materials chemistry (synthesis and characterization of organic and inorganic materials) and optimizing chemical processes (hydrothermal liquefaction, pyrolysis, and carbonization) for sustainable energy technologies (biofuels, solar cells, and energy storage devices). His research focuses on electrochemistry, green chemistry, chemical recycling, and upcycling of waste.
