‘‘The pinnacle of TECHNOLOGY is INNOVATION, that of SCIENCE is DISCOVERY, and more importantly that of EDUCATION is HUMANITY.’’ Du Tran, June 2011.
I am a research scientist at Facebook AI Research and Applied Machine Learning. I graduated with a Ph.D. degree in computer science from Dartmouth Computer Science where I worked with professor Lorenzo Torresani. I received an M.S. degree in computer science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I was advised by professor David Forsyth. Before coming to Dartmouth, I was a research staff at Nanyang Technological University working with professor Junsong Yuan. My research interests are computer vision, machine learning, and computer graphics, with specific interests in human activity and video event analysis. I am a recipient of a Vietnam Education Foundation Fellowship in 2006 and a Dartmouth Presidential Fellowship in 2012.
