Research Interests


Ir. Koen Daenen drives the research at Bell Labs on autonomous business process management. His current research explores declarative specifications of knowledge and behavior to manage and troubleshoot telecom services. Koen is active in the telecom industry since he joined Alcatel in 1996. He has an innovation expertise from different perspectives, based on many projects during his career as software designer, telecom architect, technical project lead, product manager and researcher.

Koen became passionate about the art of writing software before he started his studies. He still is: “When will humankind be able to express what his goal is and let the machine figure out how to do it? – Will he be understood correctly? Or do we need a dialogue?” 


Koen Daenen holds a Master (M.Sc.) of Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics and Robotics (KU Leuven, Belgium, 1995)
