Dr. Ngo is a senior research scientist at InnoTech Alberta-Alberta Innovates, in Canada. He is also an adjunct professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at University of Alberta. He received his Bachelor and Master in Chemical Engineering from Polytechnic University (HoChiMinh University of Technology), Vietnam. In 1997, he held a position as lecturer and researcher in Department of Chemical and Engineering at Polytechnic University. In 2001, he joined Department of Materials Engineering at Polytechnic University as lecturer and researcher. He obtained his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada in 2007. From 2003 to 2007, he worked as invited researcher at Industrial Materials Institute (IMI) of National Research Council of Canada (NRC). After completing his NSERC post-doctoral fellowship in 2008, he joined IMI-NRC as researcher. During his tenure, he had performed innovative R&D activities on polymer, composite, nanocomposite, biopolymer, biocomposite, biofoam, including synthesis, modification, formulation, processing and performance of biomaterials from biomass for industrial applications. Dr. Ngo joined InnoTech Alberta-Alberta Innovates since late 2014. Currently, his research at InnoTech Alberta-Alberta Innovates and University of Alberta focuses on polymer, biopolymer, cellulose nanocrystals, cellulose nanofibrils, lignin, fiber composites, biocomposites, nanocomposites and smart materials, biomass processing and development of novel, eco-friendly applications using renewable and sustainable biomaterials. He he has more than 20 years of experience working in the field, he authored about 95 papers for the most part published in international conference proceedings and international journals. He is also an author of two books and nine scientific book chapters as well as a reviewer for several international journals and scientific associations.
