Dr Huan Doan

Research Fellow
Research School of Chemistry

I am currently working as a Research Fellow at the Australian National University. Prior to this role, I spent time at the University of Bristol, first as a Research Associate (2019-2020) and later as an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellow from 2020 to 2023.

My academic journey began with a BSc and MSc in Chemical Engineering from the Hanoi University of Mining and Geology, Vietnam, in 2009 and 2012 respectively. This was followed by an MRes in Sustainable Chemical Technologies from the University of Bath, UK, in 2015. I completed my academic odyssey with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2019 from the University of Bristol.

Research interests

My goal is to apply sustainable synthesis and advanced manufacturing techniques in the development of a new, cost-effective catalyst with superior performance for environmental remediation, utilising nanoporous materials. Through this work, I aim to address pressing global challenges and support the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on achieving clean energy (Goal 7), reducing plastic waste (Goal 12), and mitigating global warming (Goal 13).


Main Research Areas:

  • Porous materials synthesis and characterisation

  • Synthesis of hierarchical porous materials using green and scalable synthetic approaches

  • Innovative catalyst technologies using functional porous materials 

  • Energy conversion and storage using hierarchical porous materials
