About 

I am Master student of Architecture at Environmental Engineering Faculty, The University of Kitakyushu, Japan.

I completed The Degree of Architecture in Vietnam (Hanoi Architectural University) in 5 years study and 1 year working experience as an Architect and an Architectural Intern. 

Currently I am Japanese Government Scholarship recipient (MEXT), and expecting to get Master Degree at September 2019. My research is concentrating on Japanese smart cities, which is related to people’s lifestyle. Regarding this study, I have experienced about consumers demands and behavior when consuming electricity at home or other researches about energy efficiency use, smart community, and sustainable architecture in developed countries. 

 Taking a position as an architect in Baumschlarger Eberle can help me to improve negotiation and persuasion skills, design experience and pressure resistance ability to work with many clients and realize my passion in working as an architectural design consultant. My tasks here are to design concept ideas and undertake technical drawings to meet the requirements of investors. I had time working with FLC corporation leaders and join the design team of Pullman hotels in Vietnam. These experiences, therefore, help me to improve a lot of skills such as teamwork, communication skill, seeking information and be more proactive and dynamic. 

I also have spent time in Internship job at Mitsubishi Electric Mechanical Engineering and Group 8 Asia that enhance my adaptability skills and creativity while working on many different design projects in Vietnam and Singapore. Besides, participating in different workshops or competition in Asia countries, taking on the Chairman position in two international conferences in Germany and Japan help me develop social experiences, leadership and presentation skills.

University of Kitakyushu, Kitakyushu, JP, MArch, Architecture

My research working during Master course in The University of Kitakyushu: Energy response to Residential lifestyle in Smart Community, case study in Kitakyushu, Japan, my Research plan for Doctor course is to continue studying on the use of energy in residential area of Kitakyushu Smart Community based on daily activities of each family members and their housing characteristics including: House design, floor plan, family structure, employee, gender, age and occupancy at home.
From that exploratory analysis, we can define the role of residential appliances and spatial layout design as well as the human lifestyle of consuming electricity devices in the residential area. Accordingly, the Study on Higashida Smart Community indicated people lifestyles from energy performance and become an initiative for energy saving from the notion of “human behavior”. This research contributes to the application of the Home Energy Management System in Japanese Smart Community and provides a good experience to other countries.
