Research Interests

Nguyen is interested in big data and machine learning. As a Machine Learning Intern at Sandia (Summer 2018), Nguyen identified key compositional characteristics in feedstocks for characterization and classification. He also developed an agent-based predator-prey model to demonstrate the relationship between algae cultures and rotifers.
In his current position as a Computer Software Engineering Technologist, he integrates existing algae growth models with the work he completed as an intern to model the growth of algae and grazers under varying environmental conditions. He is also developing a user interface for existing chemical retrosynthesis software.
