Bjorn De Sutter is Associate Professor in the Computer Systems Lab in the Electronics and Information Systems Department of Ghent University. His areas of interest include Software protection (obfuscation, side channel mitigation, fault injection mitigation, software diversity, multi-variant execution), Code generation for accelerators such as GPUs and coarse-grained reconfigurable array architectures, Whole-Program Optimization & Compiler Optimization, Link-time code rewriting and Compilation of higher-level languages such as Julia. His research at Ghent University has been funded by the Fund for Scientific Research - Flanders (FWO), the European Commission, the Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT), and several bilateral industrial collaborations. From November 2013 to October 2016, Bjorn coordinated the European research project ASPIRE, which performed research into Advanced Software Protection: Integration, Research, and Exploitation. In the above areas, Bjorn published over 100 papers in international journals and conferences. He also participated in more than 40 program committees in these research areas. For his Master thesis (in collaboration with Mark Christiaens) on multimedia architectures, he won the yearly Barco Award for Graduation Dissertations 1998, awarded by the Fund for Scientific Research - Flanders. In 2013 and 2018, Bjorn won two HiPEAC Technology Transfer Awards. Before becoming a faculty member at Ghent University, Bjorn also lead the architecture & compilation team at IMEC (2005-2008), where the ADRES coarse-grained dynamically reconfigurable array architecture and its compiler were developed. He has also been a faculty member of the Vrije Universiteit Brussels (2008-2011), and he has spent some time (2002-2003) in the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center to collaborate Java whole program optimization with Frank Tip.
