Vincent Doan

Vincent has completed honours in computational chemistry at the Australian National University, working with Professor Michelle Coote, and is passionate about access to education. He plans to start a PhD in computational chemistry, exploring using computational methods to study chemical reactions that have industrial and biological applications, for instance, polymerisation and protein labelling.

Vincent migrated to Australia with his family in year 10. He started learning English at 15, and thanks to his personal drive and the support he received, he finished high school with a Dux award.
