Name: Jaco van de Pol

Bio: Jaco van de Pol started his research in Utrecht on rewrite systems, in particular termination of higher-order rewrite systems. At CWI Amsterdam, he published several papers on theorem proving and model checking for concurrent systems in process algebra and contributed to the µCRL toolset. In Twente, he started a new research line on parallel model checking algorithms. This resulted in the LTSmin toolset for high-performance model checking. He worked on applications in embedded systems, safety & security and systems biology. He published ~25 journal papers, ~100 conference papers, and edited ~10 volumes. Publications at Google Scholar and DBLP.
