I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science Department, Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California, under the supervision of Professor Cyrus Shahabi. I have been also working closely with Prof. Peter Kuhn at USC CSI-Cancer for several cancer-related projects. I received my Degree of Engineer from Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam, in 2013. Upon graduation, I worked at the Research and Development Department of VNG Corporation in Hanoi, Vietnam, conducting research on data mining and recommender systems for online social networks. I am interested in spatial-temporal data mining, location privacy, marketplaces and their applications.
