Tuy Nguyen is currently an Assistant Professor at the School of Informatics, Computing, and Cyber Systems at Northern Arizona University. Previously, he held the positions of Lecturer at the School of Global Convergence Studies and Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Inha University, from May 2021 to August 2022. Prior to that, he worked as a Senior Research Engineer at Conextt Inc, contributing from September 2019 to April 2021. He earned his Ph.D. in Information and Communication Engineering from Inha University in August 2019. 

Dr. Nguyen's research centers around the design, implementation, and optimization of post-quantum cryptography, homomorphic encryption, applied artificial intelligence, and error correction codes, both in software and hardware. His contributions include the development of highly secure biometric authentication systems using post-quantum cryptography, a quantum-resistant and highly accurate wind speed prediction model, as well as various software systems and hardware architectures for cryptography, error correction codes, and applied artificial intelligence.

Dr. Nguyen's research team received the NSF-CISE Student Participation Award and the  IEEE Circuits and Systems Student Travel Grant for the 66th IEEE International Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems (MWSCAS 2023), the First Prize in the Best Paper Award from the Journal of Semiconductor Technology and Science in 2020, and the Outstanding Research Award from Inha University in 2019. Currently, his team is working on projects funded by the Army Research Laboratory, the State of Arizona Technology and Research Initiative Fund, and Northern Arizona University. Additionally, he serves as a Technical Committee Member of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society – Circuits and Systems for Communications (CASCOM).
