You can see a list of my publications with many of them online. My general area of research is the theoretical foundations of data management (databasetheory.org). An added focus is data management as a crucial service to AI, as well as making data management more intelligent in itself.

Slides of some of my talks may be online...

Check out my papers on DNA computing! Here is a great cartoon on DNA computers. There is a good popular science introduction to Natural Computing.

My doctoral advisor was Jan Paredaens. My own doctoral students are Jasper Steegmans; Maxime Jakubowski; Heba Aamer; Jelle Hellings (co-advised with Marc Gyssens, PhD obtained April 2018); Dimitri Surinx (December 2017); Jonny Daenen (co-advised with Frank Neven, September 2016); Bart Bogaerts (co-advised with Marc Denecker and Joost Vennekens, June 2015); Tom Ameloot (June 2013); Joris Gillis (May 2013); Natalia Kwasnikowska (June 2011); Dirk Leinders (April 2008); Stefan Raeymaekers (co-advised with Maurice Bruynooghe, January 2008); Eveline Hoekx (December 2007); Stijn Vansummeren (2005); Raymondus Kosala (co-advised with Maurice Bruynooghe, June 2003); Bart Goethals (2002); Floris Geerts (2001); Frank Neven (1999).
