Personal profile

Research profile

Cohen studied mathematics and theoretical computer science at Utrecht, where he obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1975. He worked at the Openbaar Lichaam Rijnmond (Rotterdam), the Technische Universiteit Twente (Enschede), CWI (Amsterdam), and at the Universiteit Utrecht, where he became a full professor in 1990. Since 1992, he has been a full professor of Discrete Mathematics at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e). He was dean of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at TU/e, chairman of the board of the research school EIDMA and still is chairman of the board of the CAN Foundation (from which the CANDiensten company originated). He occupied visiting positions in Ann Arbor, Ber Sheva, Jerusalem, Kobe, Naples, Pasadena, Rome, Santa Cruz, and Sydney. Cohen's main scientific contributions are in groups and geometries of Lie type, and in algorithms for algebras and their implementations. He is also known for his work on interactive mathematical documents, which helped found the spin-off company SOWISO. Twenty-one students received a Ph.D. under his supervision. Currently, he was on the editorial board of six research journals and still is editor of the ACM book series of Springer-Verlag. He published 119 research papers, coauthored five books, and (co-)edited another eight.
