Quynh joined in two International projects: The American Association of Geographers (AAG) project in building online-modules for undergraduate students in 2010 and the UNDP pilot project about Multidimensional poverty in Hochiminh City in 2015.
She received a Khon Kaen University Scholarship to study International Master program in 2008 and the Australian Leadership Fellowship Award (ALAF) in 2013 to study at Monash University.
In 2017, Quyhn joined RMIT University in the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies as a PhD Candidate.
Quynh’s thesis proposes to examine the contested leisuring of peri-urban landscapes between investors and local community in tourism development projects in Vietnam.
Her interest in this topic stems from a global phenomenon which is the transformation of rural and peri-urban areas into post-modern landscapes. This transformation has forced thousands of farming households to change their traditional lives and livelihoods, yet the associated injustices remain poorly understood.
