Hoang Truong (Trương Anh Hoàng in Vietnamese) joined VNU University of Engineering and Technology in 2007. He was conferred the title of Associate Professor in 2015. He defended his PhD dissertation at University of Bergen, Norway in 2006, after four years of study about type systems for abstract component languages. His research interests are type systems, program analyses, formal methods, software testing and applied software engineering in general. He got about 35 published papers, mainly at international conferences. Before he came to Norway for a PhD position in 2002, he worked for many software development companies: Punch Entertainment, Olivetti, Getronics, MITEC. Counting from 1994 when he graduated from Vietnam National University, he has more than 15 years of experience in software development, for mobile, Linux, Windows, and web platforms using C/C++, VB, C#, Python, JavaScript, among others. The experience is helpful for him when teaching programming languages and software engineering courses in his current lecturer position. In 2017 he founded a small software company with focus on educational products - is one of the successful projects, used by thousands of teachers everyday. His recent research interests are blockchain technology and applied AI.
