Research profile

Reinder J. Bril is an Associate Professor and Chair of Real-Time Systems in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and a Visiting Professor at the Division of Embedded Systems at Mälardalen University in Västerås, Sweden. 

His research is on networked embedded systems with time- and resource constraints, where scheduling and resource management are considered to make networked platforms predictable in composition during system development and deployment. Specific topics include reservation-based resource management, limited pre-emptive scheduling, and resource access protocols for multi-core platforms. His main research focuses on modelling and analysis of systems. Main application domains are automotive and industrial, software intensive systems, such as in health-care and manufacturing.

Academic background

Reinder Bril received his BSc and MSc (both with honors) from the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Twente in 1981 and 1984, respectively. He received his PhD  from the  TU/e in 2004. From May 1985 until August 2004, he has been with Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V., where he worked both at Philips Research and in Philips Business Units. He on various topics, including fault tolerance, formal specifications, and software architecture analysis, in different application domains, and in a variety of roles, such as software engineer, software architect, senior scientist, project leader, and consultant.  

Reinder has given lectures at several universities, including the University of Kaiserlautern, Germany, the Brandenburg University of Technology of Cottbus-Senftenberg, Germany, and Mälardalen University in Västerås, Sweden. He has also been involved in organizing workshops in the Netherlands and Italy. Reinder has been a member of program committees of the leading conferences in the real-time system domain, such as RTSS, ECRTS, RTAS, RTCSA, and RTNS, and is a reviewer for the Real-Time Systems journal, amongst others.
