I. Principal Lecturers

1. Phan Thanh Nam (LMU Munich, Germany)


Phan Thanh Nam studied mathematics and computer science at Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh City during 2003-2007. He obtained a master degree in applied mathematics from the University of Orléans in 2008, and a PhD degree in mathematics from the University of Copenhagen in 2011. Since 2017, he is a Professor of Mathematics at LMU Munich.

Phan Thanh Nam works on analysis and mathematical physics. One of his favourite topics is the macroscopic behavior of interacting Bose gases, which will be the main focus of the summer school. In this direction, the rigorous understanding of the Bose-Einstein condensation and related phenomena often leads to challenging questions in several areas of mathematics, including functional analysis, spectral theory, calculus of variations, and nonlinear partial differential equations.

2. Nguyen Trong Toan (Penn State University, USA)


Toan T. Nguyen grew up busy picking coffee in a small village in Dak Lak province, Vietnam. He went to Saigon for his undergraduate study in mathematics at Vietnam National University of Science. He completed his master's degree in 2006 under Dung Le at University of Texas at San Antonio and obtained his PhD in 2009 at Indiana University under Kevin Zumbrun, after which he held an FSMP postdoc research fellowship at the University of Pierre et Marie Curie and a Prager assistant professorship at Brown University. He has joined the Pennsylvania State University since 2013, where he now is a professor of mathematics. He was awarded an AMS Centennial Fellowship in 2018, a Simons Fellowship in Mathematics in 2019, and the SIAM's T. Brooke Benjamin Prize in 2022. His current research interests include hyperbolic and dispersive PDEs, fluid dynamics, kinetic theory, and general relativity.

II. Problem Session Instructor

Duong Giao Ky (An Giang University, Vietnam)


Duong Giao Ky graduated in Mathematics Teacher Education from An Giang University - Vietnam National University HCMC from 2009 to 2013. He obtained his Master's degree in 2016 at Sorbonne Paris Nord University (supervisor Pr. Hatem Zaag) through the Master of Mathematics program in collaboration with international universities at the Vietnam Institute of Mathematics. Later, he finished his PhD in 2019 at Sorbonne Paris Nord University under the  supervision of  Pr. Hatem Zaag to study Singularity formation in finite time for nonsymmetric or nonvariational partial differential equations. Then, he received a two years postdoc position at New York Abu Dhabi University under Dr. Tej-Eddine Ghoul. Now, he is a lecturer at An Giang University. The main interests focus on blowup phenomena for PDEs and fluid dynamics.
