Onderwijs/Teaching: As teacher within the Radboud University Nijmegen Onderwijsinstituut voor Informatica en Informatiekunde I give courses on Software Analysis as part of the Master track Software Science. Software Engineering in the RU Bachelor curriculum and System Development and System Development Research within the Computer Science, Information Science and Artifical Intelligence Master Curricula. The latter three courses use a joint practical lab (GipHouse). I coordinate the other courses that use this joint lab: Architectural New  Challenges, Business Process Architecture in Practice and System development Management. At the Open University I am responsible for the Bachelor Graduation Assignment (Afstudeeropdracht Bachelor Informatica) and the 60 ec Master Sofware Engineering. I supervise Master Theses in Software Engineering, Computer Science and Business Process Management and Information Technology on a regular basis. There is a separate site of my teaching activities with suggestions for Master and Bachelor thesis subjects under my supervision.

I am Scientific Director of the Nijmegen part of LaQuSo: for concrete applications of research in commercial and industrial contexts; I am Chair of the steering committee of the TFP symposia. Once a year, I take great pleasure in presenting a group of Open University graduates their certificates in a formal ceremony in nice surroundings (Bergen op Zoom 2015, Vorden 2014, Enschede 2013).

WorkedThere: Over the years, I have been at lots of places for doing my work. I tried to make a summary of the places where I worked.

Background: For more background information I refer to my Curriculum Vitae (as it was a long time ago, in 2009).
