Last January, the 3.2M€ Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Network EuPRAXIA-DN started with a kick-off meeting in Brussels.

The EuPRAXIA Doctoral Network will support the wider EuPRAXIA project, which aims at the construction of an innovative electron accelerator using laser- and electron-beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration.

The QUASARs have now welcomed project manager Minh Cao to the group. In addition to her scientific communication work within EuPRAXIA-PP, she will also lead communication and training activities within the EuPRAXIA Doctoral Network at the University of Liverpool/Cockcroft Institute.

Minh graduated from the University of Nottingham with a BSc in International Economics and MSc in Management. Minh started her professional career as a Project Coordinator in Vietnam where she worked on a number of development projects in the ASEAN regions funded by international organizations such as the World Bank, Agence Française de Développement, ASEAN Secreteriat and Austrade. On some projects, Minh visited very remote and rural areas of Vietnam and Cambodia, talked to farmers and local residence to study how the projects could improve their livelihoods.

Minh returned to the UK in 2017 and started her career in the UK’s Higher Education sector. Since then she has worked on various roles to explore her interests in different education and training activities. Through the years, she has collected extensive experience in coordinating a variety of education initiatives including doctoral training programs, PGT programs, CPD and summer schools.
