Personal profile



Jeremy Bryans is a Research Fellow in Automotive Cybersecurity in the Centre for Mobility and Transport. He specialises in the use of formal methods. He is the Coventry PI on CEM-DIT - a project developing an automated system to support decision makers during emergency responses. He recently finished a project developing a security mechanism to automatically analyse behaviour on internal vehicle networks. Previously 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. Prior to that he 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.

Automotive security

Research Interests

Automotive Cybersecurity; Systems of Systems; Cyber-Physical Systems; Formal Verification

Vision Statement


I am currently a Research Fellow in the Centre for Mobility and Transport at Coventry University. In my research I seek to answer the questions: how can we build secure systems, and how can we demonstrate that they are secure? Within the Centre I sepcialise in issues of 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.
