Hi, welcome to my homepage. I come from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. My name in Vietnamese is Huỳnh Ngọc Tuyên. I am currently a PhD candidate at the Department of Computer Science, The University of Texas at Austin. My adviser is Prof. Raymond J. Mooney.

I am graduating this summer and looking for a post-doc position in research or industrial labs. Here is my CV.

Research interests and publications

Research interests

My current research is on improving the accuracy and scalability of discriminative learning methods for Markov Logic Networks. Besides, I am also interested in Bayesian Statistics, Optimization, Computer Vision, Computational Linguistics, and Bioinformatics.
