Motivation: I am in pursuit of  a research-oriented career in Computer Science applied to Life Science, particularly in the field of high-performance bioinformatics, which is my expertise. I would like to use my knowledge of high-performance computing in bioinformatics for real applications, and further learn and practice biological expertise on genetics data analysis. I  prefer working in multi-disciplinary teams to exchange skills and knowledge.

PhD Thesis
I finished my PhD study in December 2012 in the Bonsai (Sequoia) Bioinformatics Reasearch Group (INRIALIFLCNRSUniversity of Lille 1), France. My thesis is about "Bioinformatics Sequence Comparisons on Manycore Processors", in which I proposed data structures and algorithms to efficiently solve a problem of approximate pattern matching, used in intesive sequence comparisons. These methods are tailored for parallel processors such as the graphics processing units (GPUs).

Personal History
I graduated from School of Information and Communication Technology, Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), Vietnam in 2004. From 2005 to 2008, I was a postgraduate student at Francophonie Institute of Informatics (IFI), Vietnam and got a MSc Degree there. As part of the master program, I took a training session at Laboratory of the Corpuscular Physics of Clermont-Ferrand, France from March 2008 to September 2008. From 2009 to 2012, I did my PhD thesis in the Bonsai (Sequoia) Bioinformatics Reasearch Group (INRIA, LIFL, CNRS, University of Lille 1), France. Since 06/2013, I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Parallel and Distributed Architectures Research Group, Institute of Computer Science, the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany.

Hobbies
