About Me

Hi, I am a Computer Vision Researcher at the Media Analytics Department of NEC Laboratories America, Inc. in San Jose, CA. Before that, I received my PhD degree from the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies, University of Adelaide, Australia under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Tat-Jun Chin and Prof. David Suter in December 2014, and obtained my BEng (Hons) degree from Vietnam National University - Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Vietnam in April 2010.

Generally, I am interested in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. My current researches focus on: SFM/SLAM, 3D Object Localization, and 3D Scene Understanding, with applications in Advanced Driver-Assistance System, Autonomous Driving, and Dashcam Video Analysis.
