Dr. Pham was born and raised in Buon Ma Thuot City, Daklak, Vietnam, being the elder of two. He came to the United States in 2012 to attend the graduate school in Mathematics at the University of Minnesota. During this time, he found the restored church of Jesus Christ and was baptized. During 2018-2020, he worked as a postdoc at Oregon State University. Here he met his eternal companion, Kathy Sherwood, who was then a high school Spanish teacher. He taught at Brigham Young University the following 2 years and Eastern Oregon University the following year before joining Brigham Young University-Hawaii in 2023. He enjoys learning and teaching math, playing the guitar, researching genealogy, and spending time with his precious family. With his Vietnamese background, he is excited to contribute to the cultural diversity of the campus community.
