Overview

Tuan specialises in Colloid & Interface Science, Computational Molecular Science, and Organo-Mineral Interactions.

Tuan recently joined the Sustainable Minerals Institute to work on research to develop cost-effective and sustainable technologies for rehabilitating mine waste tailing. He has evolved in a wide range of research activities in the fields of colloid and interface science, and their practical applications in various disciplinary and interdisciplinary contexts, including agriculture, environment, and oil/gas/minerals processing.

Tuan's recent contributions to the field have been a series of studies on the heat and mass transfer of evaporating nanofluid droplets, self-assembly of nanoparticles within confined spaces, assembly of peptides into conducting-fibril, assembly of polymers and their interaction with other micro- (surfactants) and macro-(dsRNA) molecules.

Tuan is working toward "green" and sustainable solutions for mineral processing and transforming waste streams from the mining industry.
