Prof. Bol leads the Electronic Circuits and Systems (ECS) group focused on ultra-low-power design of integrated circuits for environmental and biomedical IoT applications including computing, power management, sensing and wireless communications with a holistic focus on environmental sustainability. He is actively engaged in a social-ecological transition in the field of ICT research with a post-growth approach.
Prof. Bol has authored more than 150 papers and conference contributions and holds three delivered patents. He (co-)received four Best Paper/Poster/Design Awards in IEEE conferences (ICCD 2008, SOI Conf. 2008, FTFC 2014, ISCAS 2020) and supervised the PhD thesis of Charlotte Frenkel who received the 2021 Nokia Bell Scientific Award and the 2021 IBM Innovation Award for her PhD. He serves as a reviewer for various IEEE journals/conferences and presented several keynotes in international conferences. On the private side, Prof. Bol pioneered the parental leave for male professors in his faculty, to spend time connecting to nature with his family.
