After receiving the "Goedel Prize" for The Best Ph.D. Dissertation of The Year in 1996 from the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation, Johannes Kepler University of Linz , Dr. Tran has been on his professor positions at university in Austria, Texas and South Dakota. Dr. Tran has been the advisor for Thesis' work of many Master and PhD students. Since 2009, Dr. Tran has served the Review Panels for National Science Foundation CCLI program, CCF-AF program and CCF-Engineering program. Dr. Tran has published 62 research publications including research books. He also has industrial experiment in developing the software tools. He has been supported by nine research grants including four NSF awards.
I have taught a wide range of courses for both graduate and undergraduate students. My teaching philosophy is that our students deserve a strong background on programming and theoretical foundations of computer science together with a strong knowledge on state-of-the-art research areas in computer science and applications so they can be well prepared for their future academic or industrial career.
My research are focused on the following areas: (a) Computer Science Theory: Computational Methods and Algorithmic Foundations. Especially, the Theory of Groebner Bases; (b) Computational Methods in Bio-Informatics; and (c) High Performance Computing. I have received 11 grants with a total amount of $674,000 including 5 grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF). I have served many National Science Foundation's Panels for reviewing computer science proposals submitted to the CISE and DUE programs since 2009.
