Trien T. Nguyen


Dr. Nguyen has a background in engineering, mathematics, and economics. His research interest includes computational economic modelling of international trade, environment, borders, and government policies on taxation, controls and regulations.

Graduate Supervision:

Students with interdisciplinary research interests in policy issues on aviation, airports, controls, pricing, and development and training are welcome. Some first-year introductory background in economics would be helpful but not absolutely necessary --- more important is a willingness to step into the new unknown frontier of aviation research.
