About me

My name is Anh Vu Vo or Võ Anh Vũ in Vietnamese. In Vietnam, we write the family name (Võ) first, follow by the given name (Anh Vũ). My given name (Anh Vũ) has a short form of "Vũ", which is my preferred way to be addressed.

I am currently based in University College Dublin's School of Computer Science, and serve UrbanARK, a US-Ireland collaboration project that harnesses urban spatial data for flood risk assessment and communication. Together with my colleagues at UCD, I am developing a distributed spatial data system for LiDAR and other urban datasets. Before re-joining UCD in 2019, I worked as a Research Scientist at New York University's Center for Urban Science and Progress. My research interests include high-scalability and high-performance algorithms for capture, storage, analysis, and integration of LiDAR and other geospatial datasets. My curriculum vitae can be downloaded here. I am updating my academic and professional activities on my institutional page at UCD.

I received my PhD award from University College Dublin. My thesis can be downloaded from UCD Research Repository. I also hold a Masters degree from the University of Melbourne in Australia and a Bachelors degree from HCMC University of Architecture in Vietnam. I am the recipient of the First Prize in the 2015 IEEE GRSS Data Fusion Contest and the Australian Government's Endeavour Postgraduate Award.
