My name is Jeroen van den Bos, I am a software engineer and researcher interested in automated digital forensics. My work focuses on developing, applying and evaluating techniques to improve modifiability, runtime performance and scalability of digital forensics software.

I am senior researcher in the forensic software engineering-group at the Netherlands Forensic Institute. Additionally I am professor of automated digital forensics at Zuyd University and I maintain close ties with the software analysis & transformation-group at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica.


The best way to contact me is through e-mail: jeroen@infuse.org.

I am active on Google Scholar, Twitter and Github.


I regularly review papers for journals and conferences in the areas of both digital forensics and software engineering, including Journal of Digital Investigation and KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems.

I am also a PC member for some events, including DFRWS (EU edition in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017), ICSME (Industry Track in 2015), TrustCom (Forensics Track in 2016 and 2017), ICSE (Practice Track in 2017), SANER (Industry Track in 2017) and SERF (in 2017).
