Son Thai Ly

I am a researcher at Chonnam National University, South Korea. I completed my Master degree in Computer Science at the same institution in Fall 2019, advised by Prof. Guee-Sang Lee. I also led a project on 4D Printing and finished my Master degree in Material Engineering under supervision of Prof. Joo-Yong Kim at Soongsil University in 2018. Without the guidance and support of these two Professors, I wouldn't have found my academic pathway, and I will always be grateful for that.

Before that, I was a Lecturer at Van Lang University and participated in writing some technical drawing & CAD books (these and this in Vietnamese though) because I enjoy transfering knowledge to others.

Other than academic pursuits, I love doing pretty much every brain-needed sport because it helps my thinking.

Research Interests
Although my recent works are application researches, I am primarily interested in the intesection of representation learning and deep generative model. More specifically, I focus on developing efficient algorithms that not only exploit useful patterns on specific in-the-wild large-scale datasets, but also perform well on little and unseen data. I am also interested in optimization and computer vision.

About Myself
I am Vietnamese. I love to explore other possibilities every aspect in life (mostly academia) by "what if" method, even if that subject is widely acknowledged. This helps me to understand and remember that subject better and sometimes yields interested ideas. I also do garden works and read fiction books for relaxation. Travelling is another hobby of mine, especially with a group of friends and their families on motobikes, packed with tents and guitars.
