The complexity of man made systems on all scales is my research field. Cyber Infrastructure is rapidly evolving from relatively simple fixed components to programmable and virtualized objects with many degrees of freedom, owned and operated by different entities in multiple administrative connected domains on the Internet. Harnessing this complexity in a transparent trust-able way for safe and secure data processing is a major research topic that nowadays defines the focus in my research.

At the same time I lead the Systems and Networking Lab that conducts  research on leading-edge computer systems of all scales, ranging from global-scale systems and networks to embedded devices. Across these multiple scales our particular interest is on extra-functional properties of systems, such as performance, programmability, productivity, security, trust, sustainability and, last but not least, the societal impact of emerging systems-related technologies. Our approach to research is a practical and engineering-oriented one that regularly involves the design, implementation and maintenance of prototypical tools and proof-of-concept applications that demonstrate and promote our research results. The SNE laboratory is closely working together with the SNE Master (www.os3.nl), Software Engineering Master (SE) and the Computer Science Master (CS) programs to disseminate knowledge through education. For more information see: Systems and Networking Laboratory (SNE).
