Dr. Michel R.V. Chaudron is is programme director of the M.Sc. in ICT in Business and studied Computer Science in Leiden, Netherlands and performed part of his M. Sc. studies at the Programming Research Lab at Oxford University. Subsequently, he worked towards his Ph.D. in Leiden. This research combined ideas from the area's of coordination, design of parallel and distributed programs and formal methods. After completing his academic education in 1997, he worked for two years with CMG in The Hague. There he worked as an IT architect in the area of traffic and transport telematics. During this period he was confronted with the gap between the needs of professional system engineers for architecting complex systems and the methods that academia offers. The desire to close this gap led him to return to academia in 1999 at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven(TUE). Since the academic year 2008 Chaudron is associate professor at the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science.
