Hieu Trinh was born in VN.  He left VN and came to Australia as a refugee in 1982.

Hieu Trinh obtained his BEng (Hons), MEngSc, PhD degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, all from The University of Melbourne, Australia in 1990, 1992 and 1996.  He was a post-doctoral research fellow at Melbourne University in 1996.  He was a Lecturer at James Cook University in Townsville, Queensland from 1997-2000. He joined Deakin University in Jan 2001 where he is currently an Associate Professor.  His current research activities include systems and control theory, fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control, robotics, application of control theory to industrial systems and power systems. He has won some national competitive research grants (Australian Research Council Grants) which therefore allow him to conduct his own research interests.

Hieu Trinh is also a dedicated Lecturer who is very passionate about transferring/instilling his knowledge of control engineering to the next generation of engineers and PhD researchers at Deakin University.  For this, he has received some recognitions for excellence in teaching from the offices of the Dean and Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Deakin University.
