Faculty Spotlight

Lingh Ngo

Dr. Linh Ngo completed his PhD in Computer Science in December of 2011 at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. From 2012 to 2015, he joined the Big Data Systems Lab at the School of Computing, Clemson University, first as a postdoctoral researcher and later to become a Research Assistant Professor. From 2015 to 2018, he became the Director of Data Science for the Cyberinfrastructure and Technology Integration (CITI) Department within the Clemson Computing and Information Technology Group.

Dr. Ngo’s general research focuses on the areas of distributed systems, big data analytics, and computer science education. More specifically, he is interested in research problems that come from real world scenarios and can create learning opportunities to students, particularly undergraduates. He is also interested in interdisciplinary collaborative work where research computing technologies are combined with domain knowledge to address socially relevant research problems.
