Welcome to the Homepage of Cees de Laat
complexity of digital 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, operated and governed by different entities in multiple
administrative domains interacting 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
I am guest of the Multiscale Networked Systems (MNS), Complex Cyber Infrastructure (CCI) and Parallel Computing Systems (PCS) research groups which, a.o., host this research line.
As per Sept 1, 2022 I am not teaching anymore.
