Thuy Tran

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr Thuy obtained her MSc in Analytical Chemistry from Umeå University and after that graduated from Stockholm University with a PhD degree in Analytical Chemistry in 2013. In 2014 she joined Prof. Vernon Reinhold group at University of New Hampshire, USA. She thereafter moved back to Linköping in 2016 and worked at ArgusEye AB as a R&D engineer. She received the Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual fellowship and joined the group in May 2019.

Research interest

My research is focused on developing analytical methodologies for characterization of therapeutic proteins e.g. monoclonal antibodies during their bioproduction. The methods are based on plasmonic properties of nanoparticles.
