I was born in Leuven, Belgium, in 1973. I received my MSc degree in Electrical Engineering and the PhD degree in
Applied Sciences from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL),
Belgium, in June 1996 and May 2000, respectively. I have been a
Research Assistant and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the KUL from October
1996 till September 2003. During the summer of 1998, I visited
Stanford University (with Prof A. Paulraj), and from March 2001
till May 2002, I was a Visiting Researcher (with Prof. G. Giannakis) and Lecturer at the University of Minnesota.
Currently, I am a Full Professor at the Faculty of
Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of the
Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands.
My research interests lie in the broad area of signal processing
for communications and networking. Recently, I have been working on distributed signal processing for self organizing wireless
networks, with applications in cognitive radio and sensor networks. The topics I address include energy efficiency, spectrum sensing, spectrum utilization and information processing.
I received numerous awards including a 2002 IEEE Signal Processing Society Young Author Best
Paper Award and a 2005 IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Paper
I am an IEEE Fellow (for contributions in Signal Processing for
Communications) and the Editor in Chief of the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal
Processing. In the past, I served as the Chair of the IEEE
Signal Processing for Communications and Networking Technical
Committee (SPCOM TC). I have also served on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, the IEEE Transactions on
Wireless Communications, the IEEE Signal Processing Letters, and
the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing.
