Hai Nguyen is a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago. He obtained his B.E in Computer Engineering from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT, also known as Bach Khoa University) in 2016. After graduation, he spent about a year working at the High-Performance Computing Center (HPCC) and Intelligent Transpoirtation Systems Group (ITSG) at HCMUT before moving to the University of Chicago in Summer 2017. During the time at HCMUT, Hai contributed to projects concerning constructing storage systems for large datasets by exploiting advanced hardware architectures. The results of his research are playing a crucial role in BK Smart Traffic -- a real-time traffic monitoring system used by the local government and people in Ho Chi Minh City for dealing with the traffic congestion during rush hours. At the University of Chicago, Hai works under the supervision of Prof. Andrew A. Chien. His research interests include Operating Systems, Distributed Computing, Storage Systems, and High-Performance Computing.
