Dr. Tung Tran

We are very happy to welcome Dr. Tung Tran to a knowledge sharing seminar of the GSC Network in March 2022. In a friendly and open-minded environment, we will discuss about research and collaborative potentiality. You are most welcome.

Biography: Dr. Tung Tran is currently a senior researcher in ARC Graphene Research Hub and a lecturer at School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials, the University of Adelaide, South Australia. He received his Ph.D. of Materials Science and Engineering at Korea University (KU, South Korea) in 2010. Before working at the University of Adelaide since 2015, he was a postdoc at KU (BK 21, 2011), University of South Brittany (2011-2012) and CNRS-Strasbourg University (2013-2014), France.


Development of nanocomposite materials for sensing platforms toward biomedical diagnostics and health monitoring


This talk will be presented two research topics aimed at developing nanocomposites for chemical vapor/gas sensors, and electromechanical piezo-resistive sensors. In particular, it will be focused on fabricating affordable sensors for biomedical diagnostics for human health monitoring.

In the first topic is about functional nanomaterials and sensing devices for detection of trace amount of volatile organic compound (VOC) biomarkers for detecting breath biomarkers linked to chronic diseases (such as lung cancer, asthma, diabetes and kidney disease).

The second topic is to develop a wearable sensors for the healthcare sector that are flexible and highly sensitive pressure, strain and temperature. These sensors will be fabricated from graphene materials deposited on PDMS film, or by printing graphene mesh patterns on flexible and treatable film substrates. They will be capable of detecting human motion as well as temperature changes.
