dr.ir. T.J.M. van Waterschoot

Circuits and Systems (CAS), Department of Microelectronics

Expertise: Audio signal processing


Toon van Waterschoot was a postdoc in the CAS group until October 2011. Now, he has moved back to KU Leuven, although he still regularly visits CAS.
He was born in Lier, Belgium, on June 11, 1979. He received the Master's degree and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering, both from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K.U.Leuven), Belgium, in 2001 and 2009, respectively. Since 2010, he has been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands.

In 2002, he spent a year as a Teaching Assistant with the Antwerp Maritime Academy (Hogere Zeevaartschool Antwerpen), Belgium. From 2002 to 2003, and from 2008 to 2009, he was a Research Assistant with K.U.Leuven, Belgium, while from 2004 to 2007, he was a Research Assistant with the Institute for the Promotion of Innovation through Science and Technology in Flanders (IWT), Belgium.

After his Ph.D. graduation, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with K.U.Leuven, Belgium, until 2010. Since 2005, he has been a Visiting Teaching Assistant at the Advanced Learning and Research Institute of the University of Lugano (UniversitÓ della Svizzera italiana), Switzerland, where he is teaching Digital Signal Processing. He served as a TPC track chair for Speech Processing at the 18th European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO-2010), and has been a technical reviewer and TPC member for numerous journals and conferences. His research interests are in adaptive signal processing and parameter estimation, with application to acoustic signal enhancement, speech and audio processing, and wireless communications.
