He is currently the Chief of Research and Service Division at the Center for Environmental Fluid Dynamics, VNU-University of Science (CEFD-VNU-HUS).He has an exceptional skill set in flood modeling and has worked extensively with MIKE modelling packages software such as MIKE 11, MIKE 21, MIKE URBAN, MIKE HYDRO BASIN, HEC-HMS, HEC-RAS, WFLOW, SOBEK, DELFT3D, among others. He has utilized these tools to produce accurate flood simulation scenarios for water prediction and projections for river basins and coastal areas. He has been involved in the development of integrated flood management plans for several river basins in Vietnam, including Ba river basins, Nha Trang Cai river basin, and Ninh Hoa Cai river basin. He has played a significant role in these projects, leveraging his extensive experience and technical expertise in flood modeling to develop effective flood management plans for these areas. In addition to his work on flood management plans. He has also participated in the development of provincial disaster prevention plans for several localities in Vietnam, including Khanh Hoa, Quang Nam, and Ho Chi Minh City. These plans were developed to help these regions better prepare for natural disasters, such as floods and typhoons. He has held key roles as a hydrological and hydraulic expert and modeling expert. He has extensive experience working on both state-funded and internationally-funded projects, including those supported by the World Bank and Danida.

Beyond his technical expertise, Dang Dinh Duc is a dedicated mentor and passionate advocate for advancing science and research in the field of hydrology and hydraulic engineering. He has mentored numerous students and is actively involved in promoting science and research in his local community.
