FREDERIK VANDEPUTTE is a research engineer in the IP Platforms Research Program in Bell Labs in Antwerp, Belgium. He obtained his master's degree in Computer Science in 2003 at Ghent University, Belgium, developing a link-time optimizer for the IA64 architecture during his master's thesis. In 2008, he obtained his PhD in Computer Science at Ghent University for doing research on characterizing and exploiting the time-varying behavior of applications on multi-configuration processor architectures. In 2008, he did a joint research project with Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs at Ghent University, focusing on software parallelization, and evaluating the real-time capabilities, scheduling efficiency and performance of the Linux operating system.
He joined Bell Labs in 2009, continuing his work on software parallelization for many-core as well as heterogeneous architectures for media processing applications, where he also created a framework for efficiently developing and deploying real-time media applications on modern hardware.
Between 2012 and 2015, he worked on a number of research topics related to heterogeneous clouds, cloud orchestration, network functions virtualization and performance optimization and predictability, during which he was a work package leader of the FUSION FP7 project involving service-oriented networking for demanding real-time media applications, developed an application-specific cloud container orchestration framework, and became co-lead of an internal research project called Future Spaces on managing dynamic fine-grained cloud-driven network slices for IoT devices.
Since 2018, he is working on applying AL/ML for transforming software development practices. He is author or co-author of over a dozen papers in international conferences and journals.
