I am Huy H. Nguyen (Nguyễn Hồng Huy in Vietnamese).

I am currently a specially appointed assistant professor (特任助教) at Echizen Laboratory, National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan. My research interests include security and privacy in biometrics and machine learning, plus fake media generation and detection.

I received my BS. degree (honors program) from VNUHCM - University of Science, Vietnam, in 2013, and my Ph.D. degree from The Graduate University for Advanced Studies, SOKENDAI in alliance with the National Institute of Informatics, Japan, in 2022. For more details, please have a look at my CV here (last update: Apr. 2022).
