Biography

Dr. Khoa Nguyen is a research team leader and a senior research scientist in Analytics and Decision Sciences Program at Data61 (CSIRO). He is leading a research team working on predictive analytics for asset management (including Structural Health Monitoring) and energy demand forecasting using machine learning techniques. He holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Sydney.

His research interests are machine learning and data mining with a focus on anomaly detection, tensor analysis for data fusion, deep learning, clustering and predictive modeling. He has been driving several industrial projects that investigate machine learning for real-world problems such as damage detection in civil structures (including the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Brisbane Gateway Bridge), pothole detection in road pavements, fault detection and diagnosis for HVAC systems and energy demand forecasting.
