Dr. Viet Hung Ho
1- What is your background (Degree, Master Degree, PhD on…)?
I got B.S in Materials Science, M.S and Ph.D degree in Mechanical Engineering from Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), South Korea. I researched on the auxeticity of 2D materials and metamaterials using MD simulation.
2- What inspired you to pursue a career in Science-related field?
I want to make a positive impact on the world, and science offers me opportunities to do it. Moreover, I enjoy critical thinking and solving problems and answering questions related to science.
3- What is your role within the SSLiP project? How do you expect your work in SSLiP project will contribute to your career development?
I am working on simulation of superlubric multi-contact network using MD simulations. Our task is to understand superlubricity at the nanoscale and apply it to the microscale. Working in SSLiP project, I have chance to collaborate with other experts and get lots of useful advice from them. It will have a positive impact on my future career.
are the activities in your current position that you find the most interesting
In SSLiP project, I am collaborating with experimental groups at TCD and ECL. It is very interesting to link my theoretical work with experiment. I have lots of chance to discuss with them, and I can learn more about experimental works.
