Dr Hung Nguyen

Hung Nguyen
Research Fellow
Teletraffic Research Centre
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

I am currently a level C academic ( i.e., senior lecturer) at the Teletraffic Research Centre, the University of Adelaide, Australia.

I started at the Teletraffic Research Centre (TRC) in 2012 working 100% on Telari (aka TEMS Capacity Management), a start-up joint venture between the University of Adelaide, Telstra and Ascom. Previously, I spent 3 years as a senior research fellow in the School of Mathematical Sciences.

I have been one of the lead developers of the TEMS Capacity Management software, which is now used by mobile operators worldwide for capacity dimensioning of cellular (3G/4G) networks.

In addition to these commercial activities, through a number of research grants that I won since 2014, I have been able to spend 20% of my time on research and get back to publishing papers in the last two years.

I have published 51 publications: 3 book chapters, 7 journal articles, 27 refereed conference papers and 14 technical research reports. 13 of these appear in A* or A ranked journals and conferences. My Google scholar h-index is 11, and i10-index is 13. The total number of citations for my publications according to Google Scholar is 696 (09/06/2015).

I have a PhD in Computer Science and Telecommunications from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL). Prior to that, I received the B.Eng. degree in Information Technology and Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Adelaide, Australia and completed the Pre-Doctoral school in communication systems at EPFL.

I am a member of the Technical Program Committee for: ACM CoNEXT Student Workshop 2016, IEEE Network Measurement Workshop 2015, 2014, 2013, WRiPE 2012, PAM 2012, NGI 2012, IMC 2011, IEEE ICC 2011 (Communications QoS,
Reliability and Modeling Symposium), ICNC 2010, PAM 2009, PDCAT 2009
Reviewer for IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, ACM Computer Communication Review, IEEE Infocom
