    Welcome to Louis Nguyen's Homepage

    A little bit about me... I attended Old Dominion University in 1989 and graduated with the B.S. degree in Computer Science in 1994.   My professional career started at NASA Langley Research Center in 1994.   I am currently working as a Research Computer Engineer in the Climate Science Branch of the Science Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA. My research area focused on computer systems and algorithms for conducting remote sensing and climate science research.   Go to the Science Directorate to find out what we do and be sure to watch the video (you may see a me in it).   With NASA support, I started full-time graduate studies at ODU in 2008 after being away from academia for more than fourteen years. My academic advisor is Michael L. Nelson.
