Hello

I'm Luan Dinh Nguyen

Google Scholar Research Gate   Linkedin   Github

I had 5+ years of research experience, 10 paper publications, 1 pending patent, and 120+ citations. My expertise is in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Data Science. In the last 2 years, I focused on developing on-device AI solutions that work well on edge devices. I was an AI-startup founder and a life-long learner.

I got a Master degree (Ph.D. dropped out) from Michigan State University in December 2019 and a Bachelor degree 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.
