Chau Pham

I’m a CS Ph.D. student (starting from Fall 2021) at Boston University, advised by Prof Peter Chin.
My research focuses on Machine Learning, Graph Neural Networks, Explainable AI, and Computer Vision.
Previously, I earned my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science (Honors Program) from HCMUT, Vietnam. After graduation, I’ve worked as a research data scientist at Zalo R&D and then research assistant at Texas Tech University.
