Jeroen Klein Brinke finished his B.Sc in Technical Computer Science at the University of Twente (part of the first wave of TOM students) in 2016 with research being done in wireless sensor networks (flexible sensors in sports applications). In 2018, he received his M.Sc. (cum laude) in Technical Computer Science (specialization: Wireless and Sensor Systems) with research in deep learning and device-free sensing.

His research focuses on progressing joint communication and sensing in Wi-Fi applications for human health-care (and beyond), by actively doing research into channel state informaton-based device-free sensing in human activity recognition for health care, but areas of interest also include animal monitoring and smart cities. Current research focuses on employing WiFi 6E (and the new 6 GHz frequency) and many realistically-placed IoT devices, over specifically placed and less scalable solutions (in order to reduce future e-waste from niche solutions). Other areas include exploring, adapting, and implementingĀ input-agnostic and scalable solutions in real-life settings for channel state information using deep and federated learning. Additionally, he is also actively increasing his knowledge in antenna design and radio-wave/signal propagation in general.

Starting September 2023, he will become an assistant professor at Pervasive Systems in Joint Communication and Sensing and will coordinate M2 Creative Technology (Smart Environments), lecture the core of Smart Environments, and supervise the Project of M2 at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, in an collaboration between the UT and VU.

Between 2019 and 2022, he was actively involved in his old Bachelor programme, B-TCS, as a mentor (the Housekeeper initiative) for first-year students and participating as a lecturer and supervisor in multiple BSc courses, functioning as the Head of Housekeepers between 2020-2022. Since 2019, he also actively organizes the M.Sc. course Pervasive Computing, formally known as Ubiquitous Computing, at the University of Twente.
