My research focusses on design trajectories for embedded signal processing application that are used in a variety of high-tech systems such as industrial manufacturing systems, automotive, and health-care monitoring. The goal is to develop high-level compilation strategies that transform the applications into efficient code that can be executed on modern heterogeneous multi-core platform consisting of a general-purpose multi-core CPU with SIMD, VLIW and GPU extensions.
I participate in various professional activities. I am a board member of the 4TU.NIRICT research institute that bundles the ICT research from the technical universities in The Netherlands and which focusses on community building, collaboration in education and joint research. I am also a founding member of ICT Next Generation, a network of assistant and associate professors exchanging experiences and ideas, defining common interests, working on common roadmaps on ICT research and education in The Netherlands, and jointly influencing the national and international ICT agenda. Furthermore, I am chairing the department council which is the advisory body of the Electrical Engineering faculty. I am also the EE coordinator for the Embedded Systems master program. Finally I am also involved in various TPCs.
