About Me

Who Am I?

Hi I'm Trung Hieu HOANG. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. My research advisor is Prof. Minh N. Do. I am currently interested in computer vision, deep learning, AI in healthcare, and medical image processing problems. Prior to UIUC, I obtained my bachelor's degree at the University of Science, VNU-HCM under the supervision of Prof. Minh-Triet Tran.


June 2020 - Now

Ph.D. Candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering Program

GPA: 4.0/4.0



Bachelor of Science – Honors Program

GPA: 9.25/10.0 (Top 2/600 – Degree Class: Excellent)


Working Experience

Multimedia and Human Computer Interaction Group, SELab, University of Science, VNU-HCM June 2018 - September 2019

Research Assistant | Advisor: Prof. Minh-Triet Tran

We proposed and implemented a diagnostic support system that can help doctors to find diseases, abnormal marks, anatomical landmarks in human gastrointestinal tract. We also participated in several projects in computer vision and machine learning (Intelligence Traffic System - AI City challenge, Video Instance Segmentation – the DAVIS challenge (CVPRW); Life-logging).
