Dr. Ngo graduated with an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering fron Polytechnic University (HoChiMinh University of Technology), Vietnam, in 1997. He received a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering in 2001. In 1997, he held a position as lecturer and researcher in the Department of Chemical and Engineering at Polytechnic University. In 2001, he joined the Department of Materials Engineering at Polytechnic University as lecturer and researcher. He obtained his PhD 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 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) post-doctoral fellowship at NRC in 2008, he joined IMI of NRC as researcher. Dr. Ngo is currently working at InnoTech Alberta (formerly Alberta Research Council (1921-2010) and Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures (2010-2016)), a subsidiary of Alberta Innovates, as senior research scientist for Bio-Industrial Services, a position he has been appointed in late 2014. His research focuses on biomass processing and development of novel, eco-friendly applications using renewable and sustainable biomaterials including but not limited to polymers, biopolymers, composites, biocomposites, nanocomposites, films, additive manufacturing, celluloses, fibers, nanocelluloses, and lignin for industrial applications. Dr. Ngo is also an adjunct professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. Dr. Ngo has been acting as a project manager for numerous industrial and academic projects at both the national and international levels. Dr. Ngo has authored about 100 papers published in international conference proceedings and international journals. He is an author of two books and nine scientific book chapters. He has written many proposals, business plans, and scientific reports. He is a reviewer for several international journals and scientific associations.

Among the modern materials, the composites have a few decades of history. However, there has been a tremendous advancement of this class of material in science and technology. During recent decades, composite materials have steadily gained ground in nearly all sectors. The composite materials have been used in various industrial applications such as buildings and constructions, aerospace, automotive and sports equipment, consumer products etc. Nanotechnology is rapidly evolving, and science, engineering, and technology have merged to bring nanoscale materials that much closer to reality. It is one of the fastest growing areas for research. Nanocomposite materials are helping improve products that we use every day and creating new, exciting products for the future. Composites and nanocomposites composed of reinforcements, nano-reinforcements, and matrices are well-known engineering materials. Keeping in mind the advantages of composite and nanocomposite materials, this book covers fundamental effects, product development, properties, and applications of the materials including material chemistry, designing, and manufacturing. The book also summarizes the recent developments made in the area of advanced composite and nanocomposite materials. A number of critical issues and suggestions for future work are discussed, underscoring the roles of researchers for the efficient development of composites and nanocomposites through value additions to enhance their use.
