Dr. Nagy obtained his B.Sc. in Computer Science from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania in 1993. He then worked as a software developer in Romania until 1999, when he moved to Canada to pursue an academic career. Dr. Nagy obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Queen’s University at Kingston, Ontario in 2001 and 2007, respectively. His Ph.D. thesis focuses on novel applications of quantum mechanics into information processing and data security.
Dr. Nagy continued as a post-doctoral fellow in the School of Computing at Queen’s University until the end of 2008. In 2009, he took a position as sessional instructor in the Royal Military College of Canada, Department of Math and Computer Science. Since February 2010, Dr. Nagy was appointed as Assistant Professor in the College of Computer Engineering and Science at Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University, Al Khobar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
His research interests include quantum information processing, particularly with applications to cryptography, parallel and unconventional models of computation and algorithms. Dr. Nagy’s publication record includes several book chapters and over 40 journal and conference papers.
