Biography:

Chuong Nguyen joined Borevitz Lab in May 2014. His role is to develop image analysis methods for Borevitz Lab and the High Resolution Plant Phenomics Centre (HRPPC).

From 2011 to 2014, Chuong was a postdoc scientist at CSIRO Computational Informatics in Canberra. His postdoc involved with 3D modelling of plants, as collaboration with HRPPC, and insects, as collaboration with the Australian National Insect Collection (ANIC). His 3D insect modelling work  received ACT iAward in R& D category for in 2014. His 3D plant modelling work received CSIRO Innovation Award in 2013.

In 2013, Chuong collaborated with CSIRO artist-in-resident Eleanor Gates-Stuart on StellrScope project for Canberra Centenary 2013.

In 2012, Chuong spent two month visiting Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK. During this time, he collaborated with Dr Shahram Izadi on a study of Kinect sensor’s noise and its role in KinectFusion. Chuong received CSIRO Acorn Grant 2011-2012 to support this international collaboration.

From 2010 to 2011, Chuong worked for the Centre for Synchrotron Science at Monash University. He made a major contribution to the development of a novel Gamma-ray camera. This work led to an Australian patent.

From 2008 Chuong was an opensource developer during his PhD. He contributed to FreeMat project which develops an alternative environment to Matlab.

Chuong Nguyen completed his PhD in engineering from Monash University in Melbourne in 2010. Previously he obtained his master degree from Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto and bachelor degree (1st-class honors) from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology in Vietnam.
