My name is Hai-Nguyen (Hann) Nguyen. My last name "Nguyen" can be pronounced as "Wien".

I am currently a Research Associate at Aerial Robotics Lab at Imperial College London, UK, working together with Dr. Mirko Kovac.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in February 2018 from Seoul National University, Korea with Prof. Dongjun Lee as the academic advisor. Before that, I was a permanent researcher at Vietnam Academy Of Science And Technology, Vietnam.

My current research focus is on designing control and planning algorithms that enable aerial vehicles to physically interact with the environment.
