About Me(my resume as pdf)

I am currently an assistant professor at the Nazarbayev University, Computer Science Department. Previously, I held postdoctoral positions at various institutes, including UIUC, UC Berkeley, IAS and Princeton. I received my PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, Computer Science Department where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Venkatesan Guruswami.

My research interests are in the area of theoretical computer science. More specifically I am interested in:

  • approximation algorithms,
  • hardness of approximation,
  • linear algebra and spectral graph theory.

Nguyen Anh Tu obtained his PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering at the Kyung Hee University in 2018. Before starting Ph.D, he received the B.S. degree in 2010 at Electronics and Telecommunications, Ho Chi Minh University of Technology, Vietnam.

He is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science, School of Engineering and Digital Sciences, Nazarbayev University. Prior to joining Nazarbayev University, he has been a postdoctoral fellow at Data Knowledge Engineering Lab, Kyung Hee University.

Research Interests: 

His research interests are broadly in the areas of computer vision, machine learning, deep learning, and data mining. He is particularly interested in probabilistic approaches and theoretical algorithms for high-impact societal applications in image/video understanding such as image retrieval, image annotation, and human activity analysis. He is also interested in how to build and productionize machine learning applications with distributed algorithms on Big Data platforms.
