Nhu Cuong Do Postdoctoral Fellow

Global Institute for Water Security

Academic Background

Nhu holds a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of Adelaide, South Australia. He has joined GIWS since February 2018 under the supervision of Dr. Saman Razavi. Nhu's research is focused on developing techniques for sustainable water infrastructure and water resources under uncertain future climate change and population growth. This includes optimization (heuristic and numerical optimization), modelling (state estimation and prediction), and uncertainty assessment.

Research Keywords:
