Dr. Ta has many years of research, consulting and lecturing experience, mostly in Singapore-based education and research institutions. He has been publishing in reputable research outlets such as IEEE Transactions on Big Data, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulations, Elsevier Computer Networks Journal, etc. He has been nominated for the Best Paper Award twice at the flagship conference for simulation research, ACM SIGSIM PADS, in 2006 and 2013. He received the Best Paper Award (as the main author) at the 2nd ICST/CREATE-NET Simulation and Online Gaming Workshop (DISIO), Spain, 2011. His main areas of expertise include distributed machine learning, cloud computing, green data centers, distributed simulations, software project management, and computer networking. His current projects focus on engineering a distributed, secure machine learning system to enable streaming data analytics for IoT applications; and joint IT-thermal energy optimization strategies for high-ambient temperature data centers in Singapore.
