I was born in Nam Dinh. Graduated with a BA in Chemistry at the University of La Habana – Cuba in 1973 and furthered my education by completing a Ph.D. in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Paris Sud in 1983. I was a research officer at the Institute of Chemistry and a science officer at the National Office of Industrial Property. In 1991, I founded DETECH and have continued as board chairman and CEO until the present. In my free time I enjoy being with my family and grandchildren and reading books.
