Dr.-Ing. Giang Nguyen

Research Fellow

Giang T. Nguyen is a postdoc researcher at the Chair since January 2016, leading the NFV/SDN research group. Simultaneously, he is working on the Highly Adaptive Energy-Efficient Computing (HAEC) path of cfaed, coordinating the Architecture group of projects.

He received his Bachelor degree in Telecommunications at Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST, Vietnam) in 2001, Master degree also in Telecommunications at Asian Institute of Technology (AIT, Thailand) in 2005. Since October 2010, he was a PhD student of Professor Thorsten Strufe at the Peer-to-Peer Networks group (TU Darmstadt, Germany) and then the Chair for Privacy and Data Security (TU Dresden, Germany). In March 2016, he successfully defended his dissertation titled “Contributions to the resilience of Peer-to-Peer video streaming against Denial-of-Service attacks”.
