I’m currently Phd student in Deep Learning & Natural Language Processing (2016-2020) at LORIA (a group of research CNRS, INRIA, University of Lorraine) and member of DeepLoria working group. My advisor is Christophe Cerisara (CNRS). During summer and winter 2017, I spent 6 months at Google Research Europe in Zurich, Switzerland, working on text-to-text generation and abstractive summarization.

I graduated Master Stochastic Modeling (Data Science track) at University Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne and University of Paris Diderot, France. Prior to that, I followed a Master of Quantitative Economics & Finance at Ecole Polytechnique & HEC Paris. I’m originally from Vietnam, though I’ve also lived in these beautiful cities Paris, Nancy and Zurich.
