Rainer Leupers received the M.Sc. (Dipl.-Inform.) and Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.)
degrees in Computer Science with honors from TU Dortmund in 1992 and 1997.
From 1997-2001 he was the Chief Engineer at the Embedded Systems Chair at TU
Dortmund. In 2002, he joined RWTH Aachen University as a professor for
Software for Systems on Silicon. His research comprises embedded software
development tools, system-on-chip architectures, hardware security, and
electronic design automation. He served in committees of the leading
international EDA conferences and received various scientific awards,
including Best Paper Awards at DAC and twice at DATE, as well as several
industrial awards. Dr. Leupers is also engaged as an entrepreneur and in
turning research results into innovations. He co-founded LISATek (acquired
by CoWare/Synopsys), Silexica (acquired by Xilinx/AMD), Secure Elements (in
a joint venture with Hensoldt), and MachineWare. As the coordinator of the
TETRACOM and TETRAMAX projects, he created a structured approach to
academia-to-industry technology transfer with 100+ successful instances
across Europe.
