Herbert Bos is full professor at the Vrije  Universiteit Amsterdam  and co-leads the VUSec Systems Security research group with Cristiano Giuffrida, Erik van der Kouwe, Bala Chandrasekaran and Klaus von Gleissenthall.

He obtained an ERC Starting Grant to work on reverse engineering and an NWO VICI grant to work on vulnerability detection. These and other systems security topics are still close to his heart. Other research interests include OS design, microarchitectural attacks and defenses, fuzzing, exploitation, networking, and dependable systems.
