Hoang Truong

Ph.D., University of Colorado, Boulder

I am 1st year Ph.D. at the Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado Boulder, supervised by Prof. Tam Vu. I received Master degree in Computer Science and Bachelor (Cum Laude) in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from KAIST, South Korea, in 2014 and 2012 respectively.

I was a Set-top box software engineer and Android junior team mentor/manager at HUMAX Digital from 2015 to 2017.
