Tu is a PhD student in the Finance Department at AUT Business School. After finishing her bachelors study at NEU (Vietnam), she worked as a lecturer at Banking Academy (Hanoi, Vietnam) before receiving an Australian Development Scholarship to study at the University of Melbourne from 2011 to 2013. During this time, she completed two postgraduate programs in finance with advanced standing and honour. This is also the time that she discovered her profound passion for research, which drove her to pursue doctoral study one year later. Tu is now doing her PhD under the supervision of Professor Alireza Tourani-Rad and Professor Bart Frijns. Her research focuses on debt sources and their impacts on different operations of firms including financing, investment, dividend policy and mergers and acquisitions.
