CV

I am a Ph.D. Student at Michigan State University under the supervision of Dr. Xiaoming Liu and Dr. Anil K. Jain

My main research interests are Computer vision, Deep learning, and Data science. I'm currently doing research in adversarial machine learning. In the past, I worked on fingerprint recognition problem.

Previously, I graduated from University of Science, Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh city in September 2016. When I was an undergraduate student, I was under the supervision of Prof. Minh-Triet Tran since September 2012. During my undergraduate period, I spent time as a research assistant at École Polytechnique de Montréal, Canada under the supervision of Prof. Guillaume-Alexandre Bilodeau working on Infared-visible non-planar scences video registration; at Max-Planck Institue for Software Systems under the supervision of Prof. Peter Druschel working on Computer Vision part in Mobile Security using Deep Learning. I also participated in TRECVID INSTANCE SEARCH challenge organized by NIST and got second prize. Besides, I used to be a research intern at Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, under the supervision of Prof. Atsuo Yoshitaka, working on face detection in the wild; and The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), under the supervision of Dr. Clemens Lange.
