He is currently a Professor of Digital Communications Engineering at the Faculty of Science and Technology, Middlesex University London (U.K.). He is the Director of the London Digital Twin Research Centre ( and Head of the 5G & IoT Research Group ( He leads research activities in 5G systems, machine-type communication, digital transformation and machine learning within his university with focus on applications in digital twins, industry 4.0, and critical applications (disasters, smart manufacturing, intelligent transportation, e-health). He has been managing many council/industry funded projects, including the four current/recent research grants on: i) digital twin modelling for automation, maintenance and monitoring in Industry 4.0 smart factory; ii) digital twin for structural health monitoring of lifeline infrastructures (bridges, ports, roads and/or dams); iii) disaster management & safety warning system where machine learning and latest 5G mobile technologies are employed to facilitate a smart location database to assist recovery in the events of (human/natural) disasters such as disease epidemic, flood, and earthquakes with case study being in Turkey; and iii) public safety and monitoring for transportation with case study/beneficiaries from Vietnam. Prof. Nguyen has published more than 110 peer-reviewed research papers, mainly in the IEEE journals and conferences. He has served as chairs for many international conferences (PIMRC’20, ICT’20, ICT’19, FoNeS-IoT’20, IWNPD’17, ATC’15) and currently serves as an Editor for the KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE. (Further Details)
