From 13th July 2015, I will be a Research Fellow at the SCHI Lab, University of Sussex. Please navigate to my new home page for more up to date information.

I received my PhD in Computer Science in 2014 and my MSc in Advance Computing: Internet Technologies with Security in 2008, both from University of Bristol, while I was working with Prof. Sriram Subramanian. I received my BSc in Electronics and Telecommunications at Hanoi University of Science and Technology in 2006.
