Mrs Hoa Thi Phuong Nguyen
I graduated with a BSc in Environmental Technology from Hanoi University of Science in Vietnam in 2008. I worked as a researcher at the Vietnam Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Climate Change for seven years and was involved in projects on water chemistry, water monitoring and water resource management.
I completed my Master of Environmental Management at Flinders University, Australia, in 2017. For my MSc thesis, I estimated greenhouse gas emission from solid waste landfill sites in Vietnam.

My PhD research is on the ecological impacts of myrtle rust, an airborne fungal pathogen that infect many species in the Myrtaceae family. I will mainly focus on the effect of the pathogen on carbon, water and nutrient fluxes at the plant and ecosystem level.
