I am currently a postdoc at Johns Hopkins University (with Raman Arora). Prior to that, I did my PhD in Computer Science at The Applied AI Institute, Deakin University, Australia (Alfred Deakin Medal for Doctoral Theses). I did my M.Sc. in Computer Science at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea. In my previous life, I studied Electronic and Communication Engineering (Talented Engineering Program) at Danang University of Science and Technology, Vietnam.

Research Interest

My research interest is the theory of learning and decision-making. I am currently working on: (offline) reinforcement learning, multi-agent learning, transfer learning, and large language models (LLMs). Some key questions that drive me currently are:

Selected Publications by Topics

(see here for all publications or my Google Scholar)

Offline Reinforcement Learning with Large State Spaces

Robust Reinforcement Learning

Collaborative Multi-Agent Learning

Selected Awards
