About Me

Prof.dr.ing Paul J.M. Havinga is full professor in the Computer Science department at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. He received his PhD at the University of Twente on the thesis entitled “Mobile Multimedia Systems” in 2000. He is also a guest professor Smart IoT systems at the Nanchang University in China.

Paul Havinga has a broad background in various aspects of communication systems: on wireless communication, on chip-area network architectures for handheld devices, mobile multimedia systems, QoS over wireless networks, reconfigurable computing, and on interconnection architectures for multiprocessor systems.

Currently his research themes have focussed on: wireless sensor networks, Internet of Things, distributed networked systems, and energy-efficient wireless communication. The common theme in these areas is on the development of large-scale, heterogeneous, wireless, distributed systems. Research questions cover architectures, protocols, programming paradigms, algorithms, and applications. This research has resulted in over 500 scientific publications in journals and conferences, and 8 patents.

He is regularly invited for keynote presentations on this work.

He is editor of several journals and magazines. He is involved as program committee chair, member, and reviewer for many conferences and workshops. He regularly serves as independent expert for reviewing and evaluation of international research projects for the EU, the US, and international government.

He has a significant experience as project manager in several international research projects on wireless sensor networks. In 2001 he initiated the first European project on wireless sensor networks (2001 – 2004). Many research projects on sensor networks followed, all addressing different aspects of wireless sensor networks and IoT. He was initiator and project coordinator of several large European projects, and coordinator of many national projects.

He is co-founder of several high-tech companies all resulting from the research on wireless sensor networking. In 2004 he founded the company Ambient Systems B.V. as one of the pioneering companies in that domain. In 2008 he co-founded Inertia Technology, on wireless motion sensing. TerraTeq, founded in 2014, is developing wireless sensing systems for environmental and animal monitoring. In 2015 he founded Locus Positioning which develops indoor positioning technologies that provides the possibility to track assets and people and provide navigation in (indoor) environments.

In May 2007 he received the ICT Innovation Award for the successful transfer of knowledge from university to industrial use. In June 2007 he received the “Van den Kroonenberg award” for being a successful innovative entrepreneur.
