The Duong completed his BS degree in Electrical Engineering in Oregon, United States. He worked for Intel for three years as Process/Equipment Engineer. He obtained his PhD in Electrical Engineer at Australian National Univeristy in 2017. During his PhD, The Duong has achieved the highest efficiency of 26.4% for perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells, which has been highlighted in many media and news. After the PhD. The Duong has won two competitive Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) Postdoc Fellowship grants to develop high efficiency perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells. He has also expanded his research interest to solar to hydrogen production and semiconductor gas sensors.
