About Me

Hi! I'm Thuy-Vy and my favorite things to do are travel, take pictures, hike, and eat.

My favorite place I've ever traveled is Thailand. Partly because it's so incredibly beautiful and breathtaking and largely because the food is amazing. I enjoy taking pictures of people and nature, and I got into night photography when I took Imaging the Universe in college. I put this to good use when I visited Alaska and was able to photograph the northern lights.

Other things I think are important to know about me.

  • My go-to starbucks order is an iced white mocha (no whipped cream) or strawberry acai refresher if it's too late for coffee.
  • The most embarrassing thing about me is that I learned how to ride a bike on my 18th birthday (I'm still pretty terrible).
  • I fully support pineapple on pizza.


I'm a senior studying Computer Science student at Oregon State University and after I graduate I will be returning to Oracle as a Software Developer where I interned during Summer 2020. At Oregon State, I was focused in Human Computer Interaction with a minor in Psychology.

Currently, I am an Undergraduate Developer at TAHMO Project, which aims to create a network of weather stations in Africa and utilize this weather data with machine learning algorithms to provide insight on agricultural, climate monitoring, and hydro-meteorological applications. I work on the ticketing system that handles improving weather stations utilizing Angular.JS, MongoDB, and IBM Cloud.

I am also an undergraduate research assistant in the Data Interaction and Visualization (DIV) Lab headed by Dr. Minsuk Kahng. We focus on creating data visualization tools to help people learn, explore, and understand machine-learning models. In this lab, I have experience with designing, creating, and evaluating these interfaces. Projects I have worked on include: an interface to find and improve the discrepancies between training and testing data for machine learning algorithms and creating an interface for users to easily create video highlights utilizing text and image classification models.

In Summer 2020, I was a Software Engineer Intern at Oracle on the Shepherd Team. I got to integrate a Slack application with Oracle Cloud's deployment system to immediately notify users about their automated deployment's status updated using Java, SQL, and Slack APIs.

At Oregon State, I was previously an IMPACT Lead Volunteer, Society of Women Engineers Ambassador, Project X Volunteer, undergraduate research assistant in the CARVE Lab, Honors College Web Editor, and College of Engineering Peer Tutor for CS & Math.
