Introduction
My research interest in higher education policy and management originates from my experience of working as one of the youngest female Deans in Vietnam (2005 - 2007). I am specially interested in exploring how universities can do a better job of creating and transferring knowledge to the wider society to contribute more effectively to national innovation and economic prosperity. I welcome all opportunities to collaborate with other researchers on this research topic.
