Personal profile


Dr Hoang Nga Nguyen is an Associate Professor and a member of Systems Security Group at Institute for Future Transport and Cities, Coventry University. His current research agenda includes cybersecurity in automotive and autonomous systems. His work focuses on modelling and verifying qualitative, quantitative and secure/safe properties. He has been working on several research projects, e.g., ACID on developing methods detecting collusion of Android applications, DITTO on how to model railway systems for measuring capacity, Secure CAV on the first SoC demonstrator for automotive security.

Before, Dr Nguyen worked at the University of Nottingham and Swansea University. During this time, he involved in a couple of EPSRC-funded projects. Both involved developing methods, abstraction techniques and formal tool support. The first, VRBMAS, is for verifying resource-bounded autonomous systems. The second, SafeCap, is for large-scale railway systems.

He was an associate member of the Verification & Validation of Autonomous Systems network. He is also a member of the European Technical Working Group on Formal Methods in Railway Control.

Vision Statement

Computerised systems are integrated into every aspect of modern life. Examples are embedded controllers in automotive systems, railways, and medical devices. Yet, any security or safety error could lead to catastrophes. Thus, it becomes more and more crucial to detect and remove any mistake as soon as possible. My recent work is concentrating on developing model-based and simulation-based techniques to facilitate verification and validation, respectively, of security and safety requirements. Their current applications are mainly in the transport domain and multi-agent systems.
