Dr. Khuong V. Dinh is an early career scientist at the Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo and adjunct lecturer in Ecology at Nha Trang University. He completed PhD in Biology at University of Leuven (KU Belgium) in 2014. Dr. Dinh has investigated how freshwater and marine animal species from the Arctic to tropical ecosystems respond and adapt to multiple stressors such as climate change, ocean acidification, and pollutants in five major research themes of global change biology and aquaculture: 1) interactions of multiple stressors such as marine heatwaves, contaminants, predators, and algal toxins on various aquatic species, from zooplankton, and aquatic insects to fish; 2) how transgenerational acclimations and/or evolutionary responses to multiple stressors may alter the single and combined effects on tropical copepods; 3) behavioural ecology of predator-prey interaction in the warming and polluted environment; 4) winter stress ecology; and 5) Impact of climate change on aquaculture production. He has been a key researcher in 5 Arctic expeditions in Greenland and on RV Kronprins Haakon to almost the North Pole (87.5 °N) within the framework of the Nansen Legacy Program.

Dr. Dinh has received many prestigious prizes, awards and grants, particularly the H.C. Ørsted cofunded by Marie SkÅ‚odowska Curie Actions (EU), International Foundation for Science (Sweden), large research grant from the British Ecological Society (UK), the winner of The Elsevier Foundation Chemistry for Climate Action Challenge. In 2021, Dr. Dinh received a young research talent grant from the Research Council of Norway. This is the most prestigious research grant for an early career researcher in Norway. In 2022, Dr. Dinh joined the Department of Biology, University of Oxford as a visiting researcher.
