Arjan Meijerink


Arjan Meijerink was born in Almelo, The Netherlands, in 1976. He received the MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering (both with honours) from the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands, in 2001 and 2005, respecively.

In 2000 he was an intern at Ericsson Business Mobile Networks in Enschede, developing error concealment techniques for Bluetooth voicelinks. From 2001 he was a Research Assistant in the Telecommunication Engineering (TE) Group at the University of Twente, carrying out his PhD research on coherence multiplexing for optical communication systems. From 2005 to 2007 he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the TE Group, carrying out research on photonic beamformers for broadband phased array receive antennas, using fully integrated, ring resonator-based optical beamforming networks. From 2007 he has been an Assistant Professor in the TE group. He teaches an undergraduate course on random signals and noise, and is involved in research on new radio transmission techniques for short-range applications, such as wireless sensor networks. His particular interest is in resilient, low-power UWB transmit-reference modulation techniques, stochastic channel modeling, and UWB-based ranging and localization techniques. In 2009 he was a Visiting Lecturer at the Radio Communications Research Group, which is part of the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT), at Queen's University in Belfast, Northern Ireland. His research work was a theoretical study on the impact of frequency-selective fading on noise-based UWB transmit-reference systems.

Currently he is a Visiting Scholar in the WiDeS Group. His research work involves stochastic channel modeling and time-of-arrival estimation using UWB signals.
