I studied Geotechnical Engineering in the department of Geo-resources and Geotechnical Engineering at Institute of Technology of Cambodia. Then, I continued my master degree in Rubber Engineering. During my master thesis, I studied the effect of nanosilica, maerogel, and hybrid nanosilica with mineral fillers (CaCO3, china clay, and mica) in Standard Cambodian Natural Rubber (SCNR) nanocomposites for green tires application.\r\nThe morphology, chemical composition, mechanical, physical, and thermal properties of natural rubber composites were characterized by SEM, FTIR, tensile, tear, hardness, compression, and TGA tests. \r\nThis work allowed me to learn how to prepare natural rubber composites and characterize their properties. This project also offered me fundamental knowledge on the characterization needed for the rubber industry, especially for green tires application. From this study, I have published two articles in advanced material research journal. \r\nMore recently, during my PhD research, I have worked on nanocelluloses, which were extracted from bleached pine pulp and bacterial acetobactor xylinum. The main objective of this work was to produce flexible and lightweight conductive nanopaper using nanocelluloses as matrix and conductive materials (polypyrrole PPy), poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene): polystyrene sulfonate (PEDOT:PSS), and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT)) as fillers. \r\nConductive nanopaper comprising MWCNT and PEDOT:PSS were prepared by following blending techniques, and all nanocomposites containing polypyrrole were performed by coating the conductive polymer on the nanocelluloses surface, via in situ chemical polymerization in the presence of iron (III) chloride as oxidant agent. The materials properties were characterized by tensile test and dynamic mechanical analysis, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), thermogravimetry analysis (TGA), multimeter, and cyclic voltammetry.\r\nThis work presents a trend for the application of cellulose nanofibers in the field of green and flexible electronics, biosensors, and energy storage devices such as batteries or supercapacitor.

I worked for the Royal Government of Cambodia for nearly 7 years in the areas of Legislative Process, Constitutional Framework and Parliamentary Procedure. Around 6 years of research and lectures were focused on government and Constitution, and democracy. In the last 3 years, I continued to focus on research and publications with local and regional printing houses in some areas of democratization process and emerging trends of informal political structures, and constitutional and institutional reforms.
Mr. Saret Bun is currently a doctoral student in Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University (CU), Bangkok, Thailand. He was a Research Assistant in several projects including “Improved Irrigation Water Management to Increase Rice Productivity in Cambodia” funded by Australian Center for International Agriculture Research (ACIAR), Australia; “Suspended sediment dynamics in a tributary of Tonle Sap Lake Basin: The case of Chrey Bak river catchment in Kampong Chhnang, Cambodia" founded by La Commission Universitaire pour le Développement (CUD), Belgium. In 2014 and 2016, he got the scholarship of AUN/SEED-Net (JICA) for Master's Degree and Doctoral Degree. His research interest is about Water Treatment by Physical-chemical Treatment.
Nat Nan is currently a senior student, majoring in Environmental Science at Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia (PUC). Within this four years, he has been participated in intensive trainings and workshops which mainly relate to wetland utilization and management, climate change issues and WASH-related issues. In 2015, he interned as an Assistant of Environmental Social Impact Assessment Reporter at the Creative Green Design Company. From May-Nov 2016, he was nominated as a special volunteer in the program named “Global Voluntary Service to Stop Climate Change”. In July 2017, he received an Awarding Scholarship from the Yonezawa Rotaty Club at PUC and most recently, he obtained a full scholarship to participate in an eight-weekend training program named “Young Professional in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene” from the Centre for Sustainable Water. Presently, he is working as an administrator at the Research Community in Cambodia.
