About me

My name is Minh Ho. I did my PhD under prof Wong Weng Fai's guidance in System & Networking group, School of Computing, NUS. Currently I'm working as a research fellow at the Singapore Blockchain Innovation Programme. My research topics include: Blockchain Security & Interoperability, Energy-Efficient AI, High Performance Computing.

Besides spending my youth coding in front of the computer, just like other people, I do have different hobbies. These include photography, playing musical instruments and computer games.
