Jun.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Giang T. Nguyen

Assistant Professor

Giang T. Nguyen has been, since July 2021, an Assistant Professor and the Head of the Haptic Communication Systems research group. He is a principal investigator in interdisciplinary research projects, such as CeTI (Center of Excellence for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop) and 6G-life. Previously, he co-founded and worked at Wandelbots, a robotic startup, programming industrial robots via demonstration. Between 2016 and 2019, Giang Nguyen was a postdoc researcher at the Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks (ComNets), 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’s degree in Telecommunications at Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST, Vietnam) in 2001, Master’s degree also in Telecommunications at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT, Thailand) in 2005. He was a Ph.D. 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.”
