Leo Pruijt, MSc is linked to the Professorship in Information Systems Architecture (ISA) since 2008. He works in the ICT sector since 1989, first with various companies and since 2000 at the Hogeschool Utrecht. From the beginning of his career he has been dealing with methods and tools for model-driven analysis, design and realization. Since 1993 he is concerned with architectural issues, particularly in the field of Information Systems Architecture (according to TOGAF) and Software Architecture, and follows the developments in this field. He has also developed and tutored several courses for businesses and higher education.

From 2011 to 2015, as a PhD candidate, he conducted research into methods and tools that can increase the effectiveness of ICT architecture. This resulted in eight scientific publications and the dissertation 'Instruments to Evaluate and Improve IT Architecture Work'. In the context of his PhD, together with students he developed HUSACCT: a tool in which a designed software architecture can be recorded and with which it can be checked whether the implementation (code) follows the architecture. This free open-source tool is used, among other things, in the software architecture education at Hogeschool Utrecht and Utrecht University.

Building on his PhD research, he has focused on research into the use of HUSACCT in continuous integration processes and on tooling and application of software architecture reconstruction. He also initiates and supervises student projects and develops teaching materials for education.
