• About Me

    Sample photo

    I am LUONG Vu Ngoc Duy (Ryan). I am a Research Associate at the Computational Optimisation group, Department of Computing, Imperial College London. I was also a member of BioMedIA group. I obtained a MEng. degree in 2009 and a PhD degree in 2014, both in Computer Science from Imperial College.

    My research interests are convex optimization, large scale optimization and mixed integer programming for applications in computer vision, machine learning and finance.
