As postdoc researcher at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business, my research focus on international trade, upgrading global value chain and improving worker’s skill in the emerging markets, especially Vietnam.

I received my PhD from Southern Denmark University in 2013, the research focus on consumer’s choice and demand analysis for food products. I have participated in several international (e.g. Horizon 2020) and national (e.g. DANIDA, NORAD) projects as principal investigator and work package leader.
