I'm a PhD student in the Transformation, Interpretation, and Analysis of Language (TIAL) lab at the University of Washington, Electrical & Computer Engineering Department. My advisor is Prof. Mari Ostendorf and we work on various speech and language processing projects.

Before UW, I was at Bucknell University, a small liberal arts college in Lewisburg, PA. My Master's thesis advisor was Prof. Robert Nickel in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.

  • I am from Ha Noi, Viet Nam. "Trang" is a very common Vietnamese name, pronounced as "Ch[o|ah]ng" (in IPA: [ʈʃɑ:ŋ]).
  • Miscellaneous miscellany: Duolingo (500+ days streak!); my travel map (sadly not yet well-explored); my running map (I'm very slow but I love running).
