Welcome! My name is Nguyễn Xuân Khánh! It’s a long name so you can call me Khanh.

Me (in 2014)
Me in 2014

   I am a first-year PhD student at the University of Maryland, College Park. My main areas of interest are Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. I am also excited about Computational Social Science, Computer Vision and Representation Learning methods. I completed my undergraduate study at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where I was lucky to receive guidance from professor Brendan O’Connor and professor Erik Learned-Miller. I am also proud to be a PTNK alumnus (high school for the Gifted of Ho Chi Minh city’s national university).

   I write blog about machine learning.  I also compose a few beginner tutorials about Machine Learning in Vietnamese.
