    Personal profile


    Jeremy Bryans is a Associate Professor in Automotive Cybersecurity in the Institute for Future Transport and Cities. He specialises in the use of formal methods.  He recently finished a project developing a security mechanism to automatically analyse behaviour on internal vehicle networks. He is the Coventry PI on CEM-DIT - a project developing an automated system to support decision makers during emergency responses. Prior to his post in the Institute he worked at Newcastle Univeristy, where he was involved in large EU research projects on model-based techniques for developing and maintaining Systems of Systems (SoS) and Cyber-Physical Systems, and designed and led a project on the sustainability of smart grid communications infrastructure. He also designed and led a EPSRC/DSTL-funded project on the secure transmission of provenance metadata in dynamic coalitions. He is a member of the BCS (MBCS), INCOSE (The International Council on Systems Engineering) and a guest member of Newcastle University.

    He has been on the program committee of several conferences, and reviews for multiple journals and organisations. He has over 50 publications and was a speaker at the recent Automotive Cyber Security forum.


    He is on the Industry Steering Group of the ZENZIC CAVWAY project between Applus+ IDIADA and Bruntingthorpe.

    Vision Statement


    I am currently an Associate Professor in the Institute for Future Trasnport and Cities at Coventry University. In my research I seek to answer the questions: how can we build automotive secure systems, and how can we demonstrate that they are secure? Within the Institute I specialise in automotive cyber-security. I have substantial experience in developing and applying formal verification methods and techniques to problems of security, dependability and resilience within large systems including socio-technical systems, systems of systems and cyber-physical systems.
