Nhat is a third year international student from Vietnam pursuing a Bachelor of Science in materials science and engineering at Drexel University. His interest is in nanoparticles fabrication and characterization. He chose to major in materials science and engineering because he was particularly interested in how nanotechnology can be applied and incorporated into medicine and pharmaceuticals. He thought it was amazing how nanoengineering can solve problems in non-traditional ways such as the COVID-19 vaccine, which is a type of lipid nanoparticle that was created entirely differently from a traditional vaccine. Outside of school, Nhat has many hobbies and interests, including outdoor activities, especially rock climbing and bouldering. He also likes volunteering because he wants to learn more about different communities who have different struggles and stories. Helping out other people gives him a sense of meaning and motivates him to become a better person.
Nhat has been involved with the Pennoni Honors College as a STAR Scholar and a UREP Ambassador.
