Nguyen received his Bachelor degree from The University of Technology, Vietnam in 2007. He worked as a hardware design engineer at Renesas Electronics from 2007 to 2010. He then obtained his Master degree from Western Sydney University in 2012 and PhD from The University of Sydney, Australia in 2017. He currently is a Research Associate at the APT Group, The School of Computer Science, The University of Manchester. His research interests include ASIC/FPGA design, device characterisation and modelling.
The promising advantages of functional oxides, as researched in FORTE, could offer great opportunities to overcome the limitations in power, density and performance of reconfigurable fabrics. Our research is to exploit functional oxides to develop hardware architecture and design flow for a digital reconfigurable fabric. The current research is focusing on investigating memristor-based building blocks for reconfigurable FPGAs. These will then be used to develop a full memristor-based design flow for reconfigurable FPGAs
