Personal profile


Kim Cuong Le is an Associate Senior Lecturer/Assistant Professor in the Division of Combustion Physics at Lund University. Her research group focuses on advancing laser-based diagnostic techniques to investigate soot both in laboratory settings and in the atmosphere. She is also interested in detecting soot in living things using spectroscopic techniques.

Le started her research journey in 2013 by pursuing a PhD at Institut des Sciences Moléculaires d'Orsay (ISMO-CNRS) in France. During this time, she developed and utilized optical and laser-based methods, including online Raman scattering, UV-Vis-NIR absorption spectroscopy, and FTIR spectroscopy, to examine the properties of soot particles in low-pressure flames.

After successfully obtaining her PhD in 2017, Le applied for and was awarded a prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual postdoctoral Fellowship from European Commission. She carried out her postdoctoral research in the Division of Combustion Physics at Lund University, where she continued to apply online spectroscopic techniques to the field of combustion physics. In 2021, she was appointed to a tenure-track professorship at the university.
