I am currently a Ph.D student at the Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado Boulder and work with Dr. Tam Vu in association with the Mobile and Networked Systems (MNS) Lab. My research interest is in building wearable and mobile systems to capture various physiological signals for understanding and improving the body’s health. I have been leading pivotal projects in which we design and implement novel and practical hardware and software systems to make physiological sensing of human brain activities, eye movements, and facial muscle contractions less intrusive at lower cost for in-home sleep quality monitoring. I completed my B.S. degree in computer science with a major in mathematics from University of Science (HCMC - Vietnam) in 2009. I continued my education through my M.S. degree from the Chonnam National University (South Korea) in 2012 with a research focus on pattern recognition, machine learning, and visual information processing. I received the Best Paper Award from the ACM SenSys 2016, SIGMOBILE Research Highlight 2016, and CACM Research Highlight 2018.
