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 maintainability, runtime performance and scalability of digital forensics software.

I am senior researcher in the forensic software engineering-group at the Netherlands Forensic Institute. In addition to this, I was professor of Automated Digital Forensics at Zuyd University (2015-2019) and before that I was researcher at the Software Analysis & Transformation-group at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (2009-2013).


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 Forensic Science International: 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, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021), ICSME (Industry Track in 2015), TrustCom (Forensics and Analytics Track in 2016, 2017 and 2018), ICSE (Practice Track in 2017), SANER (Industry Track in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Research Track in 2018), SERF (in 2017), WSDF (in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021) and HPSC (in 2019 and 2020) and IDS (in 2020).
