Luc is from Bien Hoa, one of the oldest cities in southern Vietnam, a country in Southeast Asia. He flew half the earth at the age of 17, and many years later, earned his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Houston, United States.

Before coming to UBC, Luc worked as a Mechanical Engineer, testing to improve a new speed reducer in a startup company. While working, he felt the need of more knowledge in the field and decided to pursue higher education. Luc joined the Renewable Resources Laboratory team and is working on optical techniques for measuring residual stress.

Luc likes hiking, cycling, and backpacking with his lovely wife when possible. They are waiting for opportunities to explore the nature beauty of British Columbia together.
