Ghent University & IDLab
Ingrid Moerman received her degree in Electrical Engineering (1987) and the Ph.D. degree (1992) from the Ghent University, where she became a part-time professor in 2000. She currently combines a full professor position with part-time allocation at Ghent University and is a staff member at IDLab, a core research group of imec with research activities embedded in Ghent University and University of Antwerp. Ingrid Moerman is program manager of the 'Deterministic Networking' track, part of the connectivity program at imec, and in this role she coordinates research activities on end-to-end wired/wireless networking solutions driven by professional and mission-critical applications that have to meet strict Quality of Service requirements in terms of throughput, bounded latency and reliability in smart application areas like industrial automation, vehicular networks, safety-critical operations, professional entertainment, etc. Her main research interests include cooperative and intelligent radio networks, real-time software defined radio, time-sensitive networks, dynamic spectrum sharing, coexistence across heterogeneous wireless networks, vehicular networks, open-source prototyping platforms, software tools for programmable networks, next generation wireless networks (5G/6G/…), and experimentally supported research. Ingrid Moerman has a longstanding experience in running and coordinating national and EU research funded projects.
