About

Welcome to the blog of Arie van Deursen.

I am a professor in software engineering and head of the Department of Software Technology at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. I hold a PhD from the University of Amsterdam (1994), and an MSc degree from the Vrije Universiteit (1990).

My research interests include software testing, trustworthy AI, and human aspects of software engineering. Since 2020, I am founding scientific director of AI for Fintech Research (AFR), a collaboration between Dutch bank ING and TU Delft. AFR is a five year program in with 10 PhD students, who work in such areas as a AI-based testing, data integration, fairness in AI, effort estimation, all in the context of ING. I am also co-founder of the spin-off companies The Software Improvement Group (2000) and Infotron (2010). 

On this blog you’ll find my thoughts on software engineering, teaching, doing research, open access, and perhaps more. See also:
