Dr. Vinh Dao is currently lecturer at University of Queensland in Department of civil engineering.Vinh's research interests are in the broad areas of structural engineering and fundamental behaviour of concrete/structures.The focus of Vinh's research has been on connecting materials behaviour to structural response of concrete in order to address major issues facing construction industry; with current emphasis on performance of concrete at early ages and at elevated temperatures.
Currently, Vinh is the Chairman of the Editorial Committee for Concrete in Australia Journal and an elected National Councillor of the Concrete Institute of Australia. Vinh has also been a reviewer for ARC and several leading national and international journals and was the Technical Chair for the 26th Biennial Concrete Institute of Australia’s Conference in 2013. In 2012, he was invited to present a National Seminar Series on “Early-age cracking in concrete structures” in capital cities around Australia.
Vinh has been lecturing in the areas of structural mechanics, reinforced and prestressed concrete design, concrete technology, and advanced structural engineering. He has received a few nominations for the most effective lecturer from UQ-EAIT Dean’s commendation students and was profiled in Learning@UQ-2012, a major UQ annual publication, for having contributed to high quality of the student experience at UQ. In 2012, he was invited to review curricula for civil engineering programs at the University of Danang
