I was born in Dong Thap, Vietnam. I finished my PhD degree at Ecole Polytechnique in September 2012. My PhD advisor is Denis GREBENKOV.

I am currently Head of Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Science in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. Beside the school, I am the Vice President of Data Science at Inspectorio Inc. (USA), where I am leading a research and development team for Data Science and IoT projects with 15 senior members. Also, I am the managing director of the AISIA Research Lab for creating the best research environments for students and training excellent new generations in Machine Learning and Data Science.

I have been organizing a research group on theoretical machine learning with Dinh Cao Duy Thien Vu (Assistant Professor, Department of Mathematics, University of Delaware, USA), Lam Si Tung Ho (Assistant Professor, Department of Statistic, University of Dalhousie, Canada) and Nguyen Viet Cuong (Applied Scientist, Amazon Inc., USA).

Up to now, I have had about 15 students winning the Ph.D. fellowships in the top universities in Asia, Europe, and the United States of America.
