Thuy-Tien is a research associate at the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies at Imperial College London. She graduated with BSc (Hons) and MSc (Hons) degrees in Physics at Imperial College London in 2011 and 2012. She completed her PhD at the Institute of Shock Physics at Imperial College London in 2016. Thuy-Tien's research focuses on development of experimental platforms for modelling blast loading as well as the mechanism and protection of secondary blast fragment penetrating traumas. She is also involved with undergraduate teaching and supervisions of various master and doctoral projects.
