Lien, 25, becomes youngest Vietnamese to obtain doctorate

Ms. Nguyen Kieu Lien (L)  

Nguyen Kieu Lien, the recipient of a £90,000 per year Bill Gates Special Scholarship at the UK’s Cambridge University since 2003, has become the youngest Vietnamese PhD at the age of 25.

Lien took just two years to complete her thesis on “Terahertz spectroscopy and imaging in chemical engineering.”

She had also written books like “Science and Technology of the 20th Century” and “Stories about famous scientists.”

Seven years ago, Lien, the then a student of the Hanoi University of Medicine, won a chemistry scholarship to the University of Adelaide (Australia) where she was an excellent student and won many awards.

After graduating from the University of Adelaide in 2003, Lien was awarded a Gates Cambridge Scholarship that allowed her to pursue a PhD at the University of Cambridge, UK.

She is now working as an engineer at TWI Ltd. in the UK, specializing in applying high power lasers in the manufacturing industry. Lien expects to continue to work in the UK for the next three or four years.

    It is not true.

    Professor Ngo Bao Chau born in 1972 obtained his PhD in 1997. Meanwhile Nguyen Kieu Lien born in 1981 and obtained her PhD in 2007.

    Please read wiki about Ngo Bao Chau.
