dr. ir. Niels Bouten

Niels Bouten obtained a masters degree in computer science from Ghent University, Belgium, in June 2011. In August that year, he joined the Department of Information Technology at Ghent University as a PhD student. He obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science Engineering in 2016, entitled “QoE Management of HTTP Adaptive Streaming Services”. His main research interests are the application of autonomic network management approaches in multimedia delivery. The focus of this research is mainly on the end-to-end Quality of Experience optimization, ranging from the design of a single autonomic control loop to the federated management of these distributed loops.
