About me     

My full-name is The Vinh, Bui (first-name is Vinh). I was born in Ninh Binh, Vietnam. I received the Bachelor degree in Information Technology from Hanoi University of Science and Technology in 2002. From 2002 to 2005 I worked at the Faculty of Information Technology at Hanoi University of Mining and Geology, Vietnam. I attained the MSc degree in Software Systems Engineering from RWTH Aachen University, Germany in 2008. I received the Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) degree in Software Technology from Stan Ackermans Institute at Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands in 2010. At present, I am a PhD student at the System Architecture and Networking (SAN) group at Eindhoven University of Technology.   


My current research area concerns Body Sensor Network (BSN) in the context of VITRUVIUS project. The VITRUVIUS project aims at exploring the underlying key consequences for the architecture of BSN and the handling of information about the individual's body coming from power-constrained wireless nodes. The connection of the privacy-sensitive “body state” to a rapidly evolving landscape of services, is the key theme of the project.

Research Interests:
  • Body sensor networks, Wireless sensor networks, Wearable computer
  • Trust model, computation, and management
  • Security and trustworthiness of software platform, body/wireless sensor networks
  • Body sensor applications, semantic interoperability of applications
  • Component-based software systems
  • System/software architecture and design
