Working Experience:

January 2008 - presentfull professor Systems Engineering, University of South-Eastern Norway and Senior Research Fellow, Embedded Systems Innovations by TNO
January 2003 - December 2007Senior Research Fellow, Embedded Systems Institute and Philips Research
April 2002 - December 2002 Fellow architect, Philips Research
May 1999 - December 2002 Philips Research
Main project: SW productivity for Philips Semiconductors
Consultant, coach, moderator within research and for Philips Semiconductors and Philips Medical Systems
March 1997 - May 1999: Manager system engineering, ASML in Veldhoven.
Jan 1998 - May 1999: Advisor NatLab Philips, at the Software Architecture group.
1991-1997 System architect and groupleader systeem architecture at ICS (Integrated Clinical Solutions), Philips Medical Systems in Best. ICS develops medical workstations and integration technology for medical systems. Software is a dominating tecnhnology in these products. The Easyvision workstation is one of the first large scale applications of Object Oriented Software.
1982-1991 System architect en groupleader systeem architecture MRI scanners (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), Philips Medical Systems in Best. MRI-scanners are very complex systems. I worked amongs others the design of real time data acquisition, reconstruction, image processing, and the more generic software and computer design.
1980-1982 Computer architect of the VDU-Y (Video Display Unit) for CT scanners and Oncology Support Systems, Philips Medical Systems in Best. This video display unit performed all number crunching, was programmed in firmware on a bitslice processor, amongst others image processing, graphics generation, support for treatment planning algoritmes, compression and decompression. Due to its performance and open setup this design is succesfully reused in MRI scanners, Nuclear Medicin workstations and an X-ray workstation.
1981 X-ray architect, Philips Medical Systems in Best. This was a short break during the VDU-Y development.
April - December 1979 Promovendus High Energy Physics, NIKHEF in Amsterdam. Design and research of the application a parallel processing system for triggering and data reduction of experiments in Hamburg and Geneva.
1978 - 1979 Kandidaatsassistent at the faculty High Energy Physics, UVA in Amsterdam

The name of the university

When I started teaching in Kongsberg in 2007, it was the Buskerud University College (HiBu). It merged with Vestfold and became the Buskerud and Vestfold University College (HBV). HBV merged with Telemark, becoming The University College of South East Norway (HSN). In 2018, the government promoted us into a university, and the name then became the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN).
