I'm a PhD student in the Transformation, Interpretation, and Analysis of Language (TIAL) lab at the University of Washington, Electrical 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).
