Thanh Hong Nguyen

PhD Candidate, Computer Science Department

Short Bio

I am a PhD student in the Dept. of Computer Science at University of Southern California. I am working with Prof. Milind Tambe at TEAMCORE. I joined USC in fall 2011, before which I got my BSc from Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam in Jun 2010.

My research interests include game-theoretic modeling, robust solution techniques, and behavioral modeling for real-world security applications. In particular, I have been focusing on developing efficient robust algorithms for handling worst-case cenario of uncertainties in Stackelberg Security Games. Furthermore, I am working on predicting decision-making of human adversaries based on their activity history and incorporate that model into computing the optimal protection strategy for security agencies or the defender.
