Dr Doan Hoang is a Professor in the School of Computing and Communications, Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). He is a Research Associate and UTS Principal Investigator at the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and a member of the IoTA (IoT Alliance Australia) Security Workstream.

Professor Doan Hoang received his Bachelor in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours I) and his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Before UTS, he was with Basser Department of Computer Science, University of Sydney. He held various visiting positions: Visiting Professorships at the University of California, Berkeley; Nortel Networks Technology Centre in Santa Clara, USA; the University of Waterloo, Canada; Carlos III University of Madrid, Spain; and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore; Lund University, Sweden; and Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), S. Korea.

His research focuses on cyber security and quality of service of software-defined infrastructures (Software-Define Networks (SDN), Cloud, and Internet of Things (IoT). In particular, his current research projects include: Resource optimisation in SDN environment, Software-defined architecture for provisioning IoT applications on demand, Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV), SDN and virtualisation for SDSecurity services,   Security metrics and maturity models for Cloud, and Trust assessment model for Personal Space IOTs. He is also into establishing infrastructure for real-time accessing, distribution, and protection of big assistive healthcare data.

Professor Hoang has been actively conducting research in his fields and has published over 200 research papers. Many research students have graduated under his supervision (16 Ph.Ds and 8 Masters).

His research has been supported by competitive grants including Australian Research Council Discovery Grants (ARC-DPs), ARC Industry Linkage Grants (ARC-LPs), and Telecom Australia Research Lab Grants. He was involved in a number of industry-sponsored projects: While at UC Berkeley and Nortel Networks, he participated and led several DARPA-sponsored projects including Openet, Active and Programmable Networks, DWD-RAM: A Data-Intensive Service-on-Demand Enabled by Next Generation Dynamic Optical Networks. While at POSTECH, he participated in the development of the Intent-based Network Virtualisation Platform for SDN.

His industrial experiences include: Senior architect, Nortel Networks USA; Voice & Data communications manager on R&D Department, Telecommunications Division, Fujitsu Australia Limited; Radio communications engineer, Telecom Australia.
