Profile

Dr. Luan Nguyen is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Dayton. Previously, He was a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Notre Dame and at the PRECISE Center, University of Pennsylvania. He received his B.E. in May 2012 and M.Sc. degree in December 2012 at The Catholic University of America. During his Ph.D., he was a member of the Verivital Lab at The University of Texas at Arlington, under the supervision of Prof. Taylor T. Johnson.

His research interest is developing formal verification techniques and state-of-the-art software tools to enforce safety, reliability, security and resiliency of autonomous cyber-physical systems (CPS), with practical applications across CPS domains such as power and energy systems, medical devices, automotive, aerospace and robotics.
