Chaudron studied Computer Science in Leiden, Netherlands (1987-1992) and performed part of his M. Sc. studies (1990-1991) at the Programming Research Lab at Oxford University under supervision of Prof. C.A.R. Hoare. He did his final project at TNO Delft. Subsequently, he worked towards his Ph.D. (promotor: Prof. F.J. Peters, co-promotor, dr. E. de Jong) in Leiden (1992-1997). This research combined ideas from the area’s of coordination, design of parallel and distributed programs and formal methods. During this period, he spend 3 months as a visiting researcher at Imperial College in London (host: Prof. C. Hankin). After completing his academic education in 1997, he worked for two years with CMG (now LogicaCMG) in The Hague. There he worked as an architect in the area of traffic and transport telematics. Amongst others he was involved in projects in Electronic Toll Collection Systems, Smart-card systems for e-payment and access control. 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 2006 Chaudron has a part-time position as associate professor at the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science. Since 2007 Chaudron is associate professor at the TU Eindhoven. Since 2008 Chaudron is associate professor at Leiden University's Institute of Advanced Computer Science At the TUE he has initiated a number of research projects. In many of these projects there is close collaborations with industry (o.a. Philips, Nokia, Fagor, Ikerlan, Oce, ASML and several IT companies). Through these projects he aims to develop scientifically sound methods for supporting the making of design-trade-offs in the architecting of complex systems. Chaudron has published about his research in international and professional journals and conferences. He serves on the program committee of conferences in the area of component-based software engineering, software processes and distributed systems. In Leiden and Eindhoven, Michel has taught a variety of courses (o.a. Programming (Pascal, Java), Algorithms, Information Modelling, Parallel Computing) and has developed courses in the area’s of Distributed Systems, Component-based Software Engineering and Software Architecture for advanced level students. He has also taught courses in Advanced Software Engineering and Software Architecture at the University of Pretoria in South Africa (2003), Universities of Yazd and Kish in Iran (April 2004) and (Feb 2004) on Component-based Software Engineering at Mälardalens högskola, (Västerås, Sweden).
