Research Interest : Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning (ML) and Information Retrieval (IR) with the applications in multilingual environment.

Currently, I'm working at Voicebox Technologies Australia with Mark Johnson. I finished my PhD at Melbourne University under the supervision of Steven Bird and Trevor Cohn. During my PhD, I did a 3 month internship at ICSI, UC Berkeley and another 4 month internship at IBM Research Tokyo. Prior to this, I participated in Erasmus Mundus master program in Language and Communication Technology. I got a master degree (summa cum laude) in computational linguistics from Charles University in Prague. I also have another master degree (with honor) in computer science from University of Melbourne. I finished my bachelor with valedictory award from FPT University.
