Tam Vu is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Colorado, Denver. He received a Ph.D. in 2013 from WINLAB and Department of Computer Science, Rutgers University, advised by Prof. Marco Gruteser and Prof. Dipankar Raychaudhuri, and a B.S in 2006 from Hanoi University of Technology, Vietnam.
He found and directs the Mobile and Networked Systems(MNS) lab, where he and his team have been working on building systems to improve pediatric health care practices. Specifically, the team designs and implements novel and practical cyber-physical systems to make physiological sensing (e.g. breathing volume measurement, brainwave signal monitoring, muscle movement recording, and sleep quality monitoring) less intrusive at lower cost. They evaluate their systems on real patients in in-hospital environments such as Colorado's Children Hospital and CU School of Medicine to prove the medical meanings and technical advances of their novel devices and technologies. In addition, he has been also working on other topics including securing critical cyber-physical systems and providing seamless network connectivity for smart and connected cities.
He is the recipient of four (04) best paper awards at ACM SenSys 2016, ACM MobiCom 2016 S3 workshop, ACM MobiCom 2012, and ACM MobiCom 2011; Google Faculty Research award in 2014; the Creative Research Fellowship of UC Denver in 2015; and received wide press coverage including Denver post, CNN TV, Fox News Channel, National Public Radio (NPR), The NY Times, The Wall Street Journal, MIT TechReview, and Yahoo! News.
