Prof. Dirk Deschrijver

Dirk Deschrijver


Dirk Deschrijver received the Bachelor degree (kandidaat) and the Master degree (licentiaat) in Computer Science in 2001 and 2003 respectively, from the University of Antwerp, Belgium. Since then, he worked as a PhD student in the Dept. of Mathematics and Computer Science at the same university, where he obtained the PhD degree in 2007.

During the period of May-October 2005, he was a Marie Curie Fellow in the Scientific Computing group at the Eindhoven University of Technology in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. In 2006 and 2008, he was also a visiting researcher at SINTEF Energy Research in Trondheim, Norway and the University of L'Aquila in Italy. His research was mainly focused on the macromodeling of high-speed and high-frequency interconnects, signal integrity and electromagnetic compatibility.

From 2008-2014, he worked as an FWO post-doctoral research fellow in the IDLab research group in the Department of Information Technology at Ghent University. In 2012, he obtained a second PhD degree degree, in engineering, at Ghent University. Since October 2014, he has been working as a senior researcher at iMinds/imec.

Since October 2016, he is as an associate professor in the IDLab group of Ghent University, working on data analytics, machine learning and surrogate modeling.
