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.

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.
