CSIRO Julius Career Award – Chuong Nguyen
Congratulations to Dr. Chuong Nguyen from the Imaging and Computer Vision Group at CSIRO’s Data61 for receiving the prestigious CSIRO Julius Career Award.
Chuong was one of 15 from all of CSIRO staff awarded a CSIRO Julius Career Award and one of two recipients from Data61 Business Unit in the 2020 round.
The award supports 3-years of funding to enhance the careers of exceptional early to mid-career scientists. The aim is to develop and retain outstanding early to mid-career scientists with a view of enhancing science quality, and to reinforce a culture of scientific excellence.
“Chuong plans to use the funds to solve challenging problems in the areas of 3D reconstruction and 3D manufacturing through local collaborations and external secondments in overseas world-leading research facilities.”
“The award offers excellent opportunities for Chuong to collaborate with internationally renowned experts in the fields of machine learning, 3D computer vision and 3D printing to tackle real-world challenges.”
“One of the potential impacts of his work on 3D reconstruction in real-world is to unlock new knowledge from Australian natural collections for education, conservation and bio-security. In addition, his work on 3D manufacturing will improve the productivity and capability of Australian manufacturing industry.”
