Chuong Nguyen is currently an experimental scientist at CSIRO DATA 61, a research affiliate of the Australian Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision, and an adjunct staff at the Research School of Engineering of the Australian National University.

Chuong obtained a Bachelor in Aeronautical Engineering from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology in 2001, a Master in Eco-Environmental Civil Engineering from Ritsumeikan University (Kyoto) in 2003, and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Monash University (Melbourne) in 2010.

Between 2010 and 2011, Chuong worked briefly for CRC Centre of Synchrotron Science at Monash University and made significant contributions to the development of a gamma-ray camera system. From 2011 to 2014, he worked as a postdoc at CSIRO Computational Informatics on 3D reconstruction of plants an insects for phenotyping and digital collection. In 2012, he visited Microsoft Research UK to work on Kinect sensor. Between 2014 and 2015, Chuong worked briefly for Research School of Biology of Australian National University and High Resolution Plant Phenomics Centre.

His research interests include:
