Students, visit some of my classes.
Here's a list of my publications. Some are (or will be made) available as postscript/pdf.
Want to make an appointment with me? Check my calendar. Note that the only thing guaranteed is that you can NOT see me in the "bezet" slots.
This page will expire after days, hours, minutes and seconds

Please note that this is an upper bound. Any business you have or want to have with me should be done before this counter reaches zero. I may still choose for early retirement, die, be abducted by aliens or whatever, so it could be imperative to conduct your business earlier.

Leen studied mathematics (and electronics) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). He helped set up the first Computer Science curriculum at that university at the beginning of the 1980's. He got his PhD from the UvA in Mathematics and Sciences (in particular computer science) in September 1986 and was subsequenty appointed assistant professor and promoted to associate professor in 2001, which is his current position.

He is currently still a member of the ILLC, where he is now the programme leader of the Logic and Computation project (LoCo).

Leen has (co)-authored some 50 papers in computer science on various subjects, like datastructures, algorithms, complexity theory, Kolmogorov complexity, Machine Learning, and related subjects, and a book on semi-feasible computation.

Leen has taught courses on Programming, Programming Languages, Automata Theory, Computability, Complexity Theory, Kolmogorov Complexity, Complexity of Language Systems, Learning, Relational Databases, NoSQL Databases, and related subjects.
