I am currently a postdoctoral researcher of the Applied AI Institute at Deakin University. Prior to that, I was a PhD student at Deakin University from Jan 2019 to Jul 2021, was a researcher at Ulsan National University of Science and Technology (UNIST) from Mar 2018 to Dec 2019, and obtained my Master at UNIST in 2018.

I work on machine learing with the goal of developing advanced data-driven machine learning and statistical methods for learning and reasoning in complex, structured models over large, structured datasets. In particular, I am interested in improving statistical efficiency and generalization beyond i.i.d. setting of machine and reinforcement learning systems via imposing/exploiting minimal structural inductive biases. Currently, I focus on: (i) (offline) RL theory (with neural function approximation), and (ii) robust generalization beyond i.i.d. setting, (iii) ML applications. See more at my research proposals.

I publish under Thanh Tang Nguyen (old name arrangement) and Thanh Nguyen-Tang (new one). Here are my latest CV, Google Scholar, Semantic Scholar, Github, Twitter .
