Room 312, E3 Building, UET-VNU, 144 Xuan Thuy, Cau Giay, Hanoi

Hi, my name is Le Duc Trong. I am Lecturer at University of Engineering and Technology, Vietnam National University, Hanoi. I obtained PhD from Singapore Management Univeristy in 2019 under the supervision of Associate Professor Hady W. Lauw and Assistant Professor Yuan Fang. Ealier on, I received my Bachelor in Information Technology from University of Engineering and Technology, VNU Hanoi in 2011.

My research interests are text/web mining, natural language processing and recommender systems. Besides doing research, I love playing guitar, piano as well as table tennis.
