Welcome to my website. I am Hue (full name Hue Trong Duong). I am an academic/researcher in Health and Development Communication. I received my doctoral degree in Communication Studies from the University of Georgia, USA. Prior to that, I was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Northern Iowa and a lecturer at RMIT University, Saigon South campus.
Currently, I am working at the School of Public Health, Georgia State University, to investigate the combined risk of Covid-19 infection and smoking disease. Starting this Fall, I will be working as an assistant professor at the Department of Communication, Georgia State University in Atlanta.
I have over 16 years of professional experience, working in areas related to grassroots community development, risk education campaigns, impact surveys, capacity building, higher education teaching and research. I worked in various NGOs and UN projects.
In this site you will find my selected media stories, research articles, and professional work records. Hopefully, you may like some stories. :)
