Professional Experience Records and Qualifications
Aug. 2012 – nov. 2016: Principal Investigator (PI) of project “Carbon fluxes and emission from the Red River (Viet Nam and China): human activities and climate”, funded by the Asia Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN).
Sept. 2013 – Aug. 2015: co-Principal Investigator (coPI) of project NUCOWS (“Nutrients and Contaminants in Waters in Southeast”), funded by the University of Science and Technology (USTH, Vietnam), in charge of the Task4 (“River quality and watershed management”).
Jan. 2011 – Mar. 2014: Participation to the project “Role of allochthonous and autochthonous factors for aquatic ecosystem productivity in mountainous and agricultural areas in SEA (AlloSEA)”, funding by Institute de la Recherche pour le development, IRD, France.
Jan. 2010 – Jun. 2012: PI of project “Risk of eutrophication in water environment of the Red River basin (Vietnam): Confronting direct anthropogenic activities and climatic changes, funded by the National Foundation for Science and Technology Development, NAFOSTED-Vietnam.
Sept. 2009 – Sept. 2011: PI of project “Apprehend the global changes in the regional scale of the Red River basin (Vietnam), funded by UNESCO-L’OREAL VIETNAM National Fellowships forWomen in Science.
Since 1999, in the framework of several international and national scientific cooperation projects funded by theNAFOSTED, INPC, IFS, AUF, L’Oreal-Unesco, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, Ministry of Environment and Natural Resource of Vietnam, French government, ANR, APN, USTH …, Dr LE T.P.Q. and her research team have been interested in investigating and assessing the surface water and solid waste quality in Vietnam.
The other main scientific task of this group is to study on ecological modelling, e.g., the Seneque/Riverstrahler model which describes the relationship between human activities and natural conditions in the watershed with water quality in river basin.
