Remediation of metal-rich mine-affected water with passive systems, testing the role of hyper-accumulator plants for improved efficiency

Thao graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Engineering (2014) from Vietnam National University – Ho Chi Minh University of Technology (Vietnam). She completed her Master’s degree (2017) at Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), majoring in Mining Engineering with the research topic of alternative approaches for tailing disposal of Potash mine.

Thao previously worked on the effect of land use pattern change on the rainfall-runoff and runoff-sediment in the river basin as an exchange student in water resources engineering.

Her research interests and backgrounds are water treatment, water resources and mine waste disposal.
