Lou Somers is an Associate Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His courses revolve around information systems and databases, software engineering and project management. His research interests include performance modeling, design optimization, scheduling and management of complex, software-intensive systems.
Lou Somers received his doctorate in theoretical physics from the University of Nijmegen. For three years, he worked as a systems engineer at Philips Data Systems, partly on the design and development of a system for distributed databases and a user interface management system. In addition to his work at TU/e, Lou is also Software team leader at Océ technologies. Lou has managed the development of the software package ExSpect supporting the formal specification and simulation of Information Systems. He has also been involved in several Dutch and European projects, including PROOFS, EDISCAN and MATCH.
