I studied Mathematics at the Vrije Universiteit, and got my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Amsterdam in 1979. I worked as a researcher at the Dutch National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) until 1987. During 1983-84, I spent a year as a visiting scientist at the IBM Research Laboratory in San Jose, California. I am a professor of Software Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit since 1987.
I wrote my first (Dutch) text book in 1984. The latest edition is published by Wiley & Sons in 2008: Software Engineering; Principles and Practice.
My main research interests are in software architecture and quantitative
aspects of software engineering. I was program co-chair of the Second
Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture, held in
Amsterdam, August 28-31, 2001
(WICSA2001). I am the general chair of the ESEC/FSE conference on Software Engineering, that will take place in Amsterdam, August 2009.
I am the Editor in Chief of the Journal of Systems and Software.
