Bio

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I am was conducting research on computer vision under the supervision of Prof. David Forsyth. My research interests are computer vision and machine learning, particularly object recognition, parsing articulated objects (such as human body parts) and action recognition. I am also interested in text analysis and classification and have spent significant time working on those topics.

I got my Bachelor and Master from Department of Computer Science at University of Natural Science at Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam.
