About Me

Jeroen Famaey

I am an associate research professor at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, and IMEC, Belgium, and a member of the IDLab research group, where I lead the Connected Systems team. I received my M.Sc. in Computer Science from Ghent University, Belgium, in 2007. Subsequently, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science Engineering at the same university in 2012. During my PhD studies, I performed research on computer networks, specifically focusing on multimedia networks and video streaming protocols.

Currently, my research interests are in future wireless networks and connected applications. I am particularly interested in zero-energy computing and communications to enable a more sustainable Internet of Things, as well as challenging connected applications enabled by future wireless network technologies, such as networked extended reality, collaborative robot swarms, and distributed edge computing.
