Assistant Professor, College of Engineering and Computer Science

Engineering and Computer Science


Dr. Quynh Le received a PhD in nanophotonics from the University of Paris-Sud XI, France in 2016 where he developed metamaterials-quantum dots hybrid light-emitting diodes. He sequentially conducted postdoctoral training at the Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research, the Netherlands (2017), the University of California, San Diego (2018), and the University of California, Berkeley (2019). The research topics during his postdocs are exciton-polariton condensation, electrically-driven bound-states-in-the-continuum laser, and topological photonics, respectively. He is currently an assistant professor at VinUniversity since 2020.


I am broadly interested in contemporary topics in the field of nanophotonics such as strong light-matter coupling, metamaterials, and topological photonics. My research at VinUni will focus on (i) understanding the mechanisms of the interactions between emerging nanomaterials and nanophotonic structures and (ii) bringing this insight to develop the next generation of displays technology and solid-state lighting.
