About Me

Gerard received his M.sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Twente. He then worked for four years in the research and development laboratory of Oce in Venlo. He finished his Ph.D. thesis entitled ”the design of Central Switch communication systems for Multimedia Applications” in 1994. He has been a visiting researcher at the Computer Lab of the Cambridge University in 1994, and a visiting researcher at Lucent Technologies Bell Labs Innovations, New Jersey in 1998. Since 1999 he works in the Chameleon project, which investigates new hardware and Molderink, Bosman, Bakker, Hurink and Smit software architectures for battery-powered hand-held computers. 
Currently his interests are: low-power communication, wireless multimedia communication, and reconfigurable architectures for energy reduction.

Since 2006 he is full professor in the CAES chair (Computer Architectures for Embedded Systems) at the faculty EEMCS of the University of Twente.
