Brief Profile

Eric Bodden is one of the leading experts on secure software engineering, with a specialty in building highly precise tools for automated program analysis. He is Professor for Secure Software Engineering at Paderborn University and director for Software Engineering and IT-Security at Fraunhofer IEM, where he is collaborating with the leading national and international software development companies. Bodden is a member of Acatech, der German National Academy of Science and Engineering, as well as a member of the review board on Software Engineering and Programming Languages of the German Science Foundation (DFG).

Prof. Bodden's research was awarded numerous times. For instance, in 2024 he received an ERC Advanced Grant, and in 2019, Bodden was named ACM Distinguished Member. At the German IT-Security Price, his group scored 1st place in 2016 and 2nd place in 2014. In 2014, the DFG awarded Bodden the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Preis, Germany's highest honour for young scientists. Prof. Bodden's research has received six ACM Distinguished Paper Awards in different communities. Prof. Bodden is member of the editorial boards of ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology (TOSEM) , Springer Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) and the IEEE Security and Privacy Magazine. In 2020, Bodden was elected into the Working Group 2.4 Software Implementation Technology of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), a UNESCO organization. He is further a "Scout" within the Henriette Herz Scouting Program of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Outreach

Our research is always scientifically anchored, yet inspired by concrete applications. In my role as Director of Software Engineering and IT Security at Fraunhofer IEM, but also within the Software Innovation Campus Paderborn (SICP), I collaborate with regional, national, and international companies on the concrete question of how to make the engineering of attack-proof software more effective.
