Anh joined the UCD Innovation Academy in 2021. He is seconded from his lectureship in Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Vietnam National University, Vietnam. Prior to academia, Anh had
an interesting career at enterprises, start-ups and international development organisations. He was once an Innovation Manager at a university-based Incubator in Vietnam, where he led a diverse team focusing on nurturing entrepreneurial mindset and technology commercialisation. As a development consultant, he was involved in several development projects across Europe, Asia, and Africa.

When Anh takes his research hat off, a bike helmet goes on – he enjoys spending time outdoors, cycling and hiking in the countryside.

Why I joined the UCD Innovation Academy…

“When I got the opportunity to come to UCD as a visiting member of staff from Vietnam National University, I was really taken with the atmosphere of the Innovation Academy. I wanted to be part of this team that places so much value on creativity, energy and experimentation.”
