Dr. Dinh is currently Assistant Professor in Energy Management and System Control.
He got the first-class B.E. mechatronics degree in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Hochiminh City University of Technology, Vietnam in March 2006. He completed the first-class Ph.D. mechatronics degree in the School of Mechanical Engineering at University of Ulsan, South Korea in the early of 2010.
After obtaining the Ph.D. degree, he worked in the School of Mechanical Engineering (University of Ulsan) as a postdoctoral researcher for two years and, as a research professor for three-and-a-half years.
From August 2015, he joined WMG, the University of Warwick as a research fellow to work on 'Off-Highway Intelligent Power Management' project with JCB and Pektron.
