Dr. Xuong Nguyen-Huu is an Emeritus Professor of Physics, Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). He is also a Research Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at UCSD. His field of research is on the High Resolution Structure of Biological Macromolecules using Protein Crystallography. He has also been working in the field of detectors for 50 years, first with particle detectors (both electronics and Bubble Chambers) for High Energy Particles Physics, then with X ray detectors for Protein Crystallography ( using Multi-wire Proportional Chambers and then Silicon detectors). Last but not least he is one of the pioneers of the field of Direct Detection Device (DDD) that will be used in Electron Microscopy. He has received an MS and Ph D (Physics) from the University of California Berkeley, an MS in Mathematics from the University of Paris and an MS in Electronic Engineering from the Ecole Superieure d’Electricite de Paris.
