Research Interests

Huy T. Vo is a Research Scientist at CUSP with a focus in large-scale visualization, big data systems, and scalable displays. He is also a Research Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at NYU Poly since 2011. He is one of the co-creators of VisTrails, an open-source scientific workflow and provenance management system, where he led the design of the VisTrails Provenance SDK. He received his B.S. in Computer Science (2005) and PhD in Computing (2011) from the University of Utah.
