Trang Nguyen is currently a PhD candidate at the Centre for Global Food and Resources, The University of Adelaide.

Trang has a Master's Degree in Agricultural Economics from National Taiwan University (Taiwan). With an economic training and an interest in sustainable production and consumption, Trang joined a project working on food loss and waste reduction in Taiwan for two years.

Her PhD thesis aims to explore the attitudinal and behavioural determinants of household food waste including food waste minimisation and sorting behaviours. Her PhD project, in a nutshell, is captured in the following videos, which I won 1st Place in the 2021 University of Adelaide Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) and People's Choice Award in the Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) competitions:
