I am a first-year Ph.D. student at the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences, University of California at Irvine. I am advised by Prof. Nikil Dutt and Prof. Hung Cao in the fields of AI and IoT in healthcare.

I received my B.Eng. (Honors) degree in CS from HCMC University of Technology, Vietnam National University in 2017. I have experience in doing research in both academia and industry. My previous research focused on applying machine learning and deep learning to solve real-world problems, especially in the social media and e-commerce fields.

I helped develop a large-scale sentiment analysis engine for SocialHeat and SociaLift - leading social monitoring platforms in Vietnam.
