WORK EXPERIENCES

Research

  • Participating in Rice-Fish project, funded by VLIR-Belgium (1996-2000), the Ministry of Education and Training-Vietnam (2001-2002; 2004-2005; 2008-2009; 2014-2015), and An Giang province (2017 up to date), I studied on :
  • Evaluation of rotational rice-fish farming systems and new fish species for concurrent rice-fish culture in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam;
  • Water quality (dynamics of water physio-chemical, plankton parameters) and feeding ecology of fish in relation to fish production in rice - fish culture;
  • Predation potential of fish on brown planthopper (Nilaparvata lugens (Stål)) in rice-fish system;
  • Technological interventions to improve fish production and profitability of integrated rice-fish farming systems as well as apply Vietnamese good agriculture/aquaculture practice (VietGAP) in the integrated rice-fish farming systems;
  • Development fish market in rotational rice-fish systems in the Mekong Delta,
  • Participating in Improving Integrated Crop-Animal Systems in Rainfed Areas research, funded by IRRI and ILRI (2003-2004), I studied on feasibility to integrate aquaculture component into existing crop and animal production in rainfed areas in the South of Vietnam.
  • Participating in the project on Simulation of Farmers Motivation in Vietnam and Exploration of Adoption Pattern in sub-Saharan Africa, funded by EU (2004), I investigated factors motivating farmers in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam to apply integrated aquaculture in their existing production systems.
  • Participating in Improved Resource Use Efficiency in Pond-Dike Farming Systems in Asia, funded by EU (2002-2005), I have studied on water and nutrient balances in integrated aquaculture ponds.
