Dr Chuong Nguyen was a Centre research fellow based at the Australian National University (ANU). In 2017, he left the Centre to join CSIRO and continues his connection with the Centre as a Research Affiliate. He is passionate about advancing computer vision technologies for life-science applications such as plant/insect biology and agriculture. He is also interested in projects of mainstream robotics and computer vision areas. Currently, Chuong is working on hyperspectral imaging, light-field imaging, robotic control and 3D reconstruction of plants and insects.
Previously in 2014, Chuong was a research staff at ANU Research School of Biology developing software to process time-lapse images and extract bio-metrics of plants in climate-simulated growth chambers. From 2011 to 2013, Chuong joined CSIRO as an OCE postdoc fellow working on 3D Plant and Insect Phenomics project. During this time, he developed a camera calibration software and high-performance software pipeline specialised for PlantScan, an industrial 3D plant scanner (http://www.csiro.au/Outcomes/Food-and-Agriculture/HRPPC/PlantScan.aspx). Chuong also successfully built a 3D insect scanner to create true-colour 3D models of small insects (http://www2.ala.org.au/chuong/). In 2012, Chuong visited Microsoft Research (Cambridge UK) studying the characteristics of Kinect sensor noise and significantly improving the accuracy of KinectFusion algorithm. From 2010 to 2011, he contributed to a CRC-BID project at Monash University where he developed and co-patented a novel method to significantly improve the resolution and signal-to-noise ratio of Gamma-ray Compton cameras. For his PhD and Master studies, Chuong developed Particle Image Velocimetry techniques to measure velocity field of fluid flows for industrial and medical applications.
Chuong obtained a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from Monash University (Melbourne) in 2010, a Master degree in Eco-Environmental Civil Engineering from Ritsumeikan University (Kyoto) in 2003, and Bachelor degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology in 2001.
