Minh-Chien Trinh (Ph.D)
Research Assistant Professor
Division of Mechanical System Engineering
Jeonbuk National University, Jeonju, South Korea
Minh-Chien Trinh has been working as a Research Assistant Professor (Faculty member) at the Division of Mechanical System Engineering, Jeonbuk National University, South Korea since 04/2021. From 09/2020 to 03/2021, Minh-Chien Trinh worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the division within a Brain Korea project (BK21) namely “Development of a virtual system to predict physical and chemical properties for DNA nanostructures“, funded by the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF). Prior to that, Minh-Chien Trinh received his Doctorate degree in Structural Engineering after completing an integrated Master’s and Doctorate program (started in 03/2017) at Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Sejong University, South Korea in 08/2020. In 03/2015, Minh-Chien Trinh received his Bachelor of Engineering at Department of Civil Engineering, National University of Civil Engineering, Hanoi, Vietnam.
Currently, Minh-Chien Trinh is working on the nonlinear statics and dynamics of composites and structures in both deterministic and stochastic working environments. Theoretical approaches based on continuum mechanics, numerical approaches (standard FEM, MITC techniques, smooth FEM), probabilistic approaches (Monte Carlo simulation, Latin hypercube sampling, perturbation techniques), machine learning algorithms have been applied in his publications. Also, he has been using these approaches to study the mechanics of nanoscale materials.
Simultaneously, Minh-Chien Trinh is working on DNA nanotechnology, specifically top-down computational designs of scaffolded DNA origami. The conformation of DNA nanostructures designed from the developed tools are verified with molecular dynamics (MD) and TEM/AFM images from practical synthesis and experimental setups.
Initially, this website is the result of a personal challenge to create and maintain a website by himself. Later on, it serves as a medium for sharing his thoughts and research activities, and for interacting with interested researchers. He believes that by openly discussing about scientific ideas, good results would certainly come.
