My main research is about using the stochastic control theory for multi-agent planning to track multiple objects.
I completed my PhD in June 2020 at the School of Computer Science, the University of Adelaide. I'm working on using commercial drones (so-called UAVs) to search, localise and track multiple radio-tagged wildlife. I'm focusing on developing a smarter algorithm to navigate UAVs to search and localise mobile objects in the shortest time as possible with reasonable accuracy.
I received the B.E. degree in 2012 in electrical engineering from Portland State University, Oregon, U.S.A. I worked as a process engineer and data science engineer at Intel Products Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from 2012-2016.
