Frédéric Nguyen obtained his PhD degree at the Université de Liège in close collaboration with the University Joseph Fourier in Grenoble, France (Prof. Denis Jongmans) in 2005 dedicated to the development and application of geophysical methods to detect and image active faults in slowly deforming regions. From a seismic hazard point of view, his research allowed unveiling surface ruptures associated with the strongest earthquake recorded in France (Provence) in the twentieth century.

He then worked from 2005 to 2008 as a post-doctoral researcher at the Forschungszentrum Jülich within the framework of the European project ALERT on the sustainable management of water resources by automated real-time monitoring in coastal aquifers. His research interest then shifted towards environmental geophysics and inverse problems.

Since 2007, he is a Professor in Applied Geophysics at the University of Liège where he leads a research team, and was appointed in 2010 as a part-time Professor at KU Leuven. To date, F. Nguyen successfully supervised over ten PhDs and several post-doctoral researchers. Currently, he supervises eight PhD students. The research focus of his group lies on one hand in solving geophysical inverse problems and associated topics and on another hand in the integration of geophysical data in highly multidisciplinary fields of research such as hydrogeology or contaminated sites.
