Biography

A geospatial scientist by training and research, Dr. Vu has over 10-years research and teaching experiences across Eurasia. After obtaining his PhD degree in 2003, he worked as a research scientist at Earthquake Disaster Mitigation Research Center, Kobe, Japan before joined Chiba University as a postdoctoral researcher in between 2006 and 2007. In both places, he focused in employment of geospatial technologies in disaster mitigation and management. He then joined GEO Grid team of National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan to further expand the research onto high-performance computing platform. In 2008, he went back to university to develop his academic career at Geoinformatics division, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. In early 2011, he took the position at University of Nottingham, Malaysia campus and assisted the establishment of the School of Geography and new MSc programmes at Malaysia campus. He is now an Associate Professor of the School of Geography and Head of OSGEO research lab, a member of ICA-OSGEO-ISPRS lab network (geoforall.org). He is also the Vice-Chair of IEEE Geoscience and Remote sensing, Malaysia chapter
