Trang Vu is a Lecturer in Department of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University. Her research interests lie at the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning. Her current research focuses on efficient and trustworthy NLP methods to make NLP technologies more accessible to low-resource languages and reduce language and cultural barriers.

My current research interests include

  • Safe and trustworthy NLP: alignment and hallucination mitigation for LLMs
  • Cultural-aware machine translation
  • ML methods to facilitate efficient NLP such as active learning, transfer learning and semi-supervised learning


May 14, 2024 One paper about assessing the chain-of-thought reasoning in LLMs has been accepted to Findings of ACL24. Congratulations to Vuong and Linhao.
Jan 14, 2024 I am excited to become a lecturer at Monash University.
May 17, 2023 Proud to be the recipient of the 2022 Vice Chancellor‚Äôs Commendation Award for Thesis Excellence ūüŹÖ (Monash University).
Apr 23, 2023 Exciting to join DAAD AInet for the Postdoc-NeT-AI 04/2023 Networking Week ‚Äď Generative Models in Machine Learning.
