TUDelft Key Personnel

TUDelft Project Scope        TUDelft Organisation

For IRCTR

Prof. Alexander Yarovoy (Chair Professor, IRCTR Director), leads all radar-related research in IRCTR. He was a leader of TUD teams on 7 EU-sponsored projects. His main research interests are in ultrawideband radar systems and transient electromagnetics including UWB antennas. He has (co-)authored more than 250 publications and several patents. Since 2008 Prof. Yarovoy serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the European Microwave Association.

Ir. Dinh Tran received the MSc.EE from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands in 1991. Since 1989 he has served as a researcher at the same University, and at International Research Centre for Telecommunications and Radar (IRCTR). His major interests are Radar, Antennas and Propagation, Microwave engineering, MMICs, Electromagnetic radiation, scattering and diffraction.

Pascal Aubry got the “D.E.S.S. d’Electronique et Automatique Option Hyperfréquences” from Université Pierre et Marie Curie in 1993. Since 1996 he is with Delft University of Technology, IRCTR. As well as educational tasks, he has been involved in research activities related to Ultra Wide-Band Ground Penetrating Radar, such as antenna and system validation tests, GPR integration in a multi-sensor system, and UWB radar signal processing. He is also active in concealed weapon detection using UWB radar imaging and Space-Time Adaptive Processing for clutter suppression in MIMO radar.

For CiTG

Dr.ir. Guy Drijkoningen, Associate professor in Applied Geophysics, is an expert in geophysical imaging and monitoring methods. He is the initiator and head of the geophysical programme of LOFAR, a cooperation that builds a large sensor network over the northern part of the Netherlands for astronomical, geophysical, and agricultural observations. Within LOFAR, Dr Drijkoningen is responsible for designing the acquisition infrastructure and developing new methods for imaging, monitoring and interpreting structures and processes in the subsurface. The latter is carried out within the ISES Programme NedSeis, Drijkoningen is the coordinator. Dr Drijkoningen has (co-)authored more than 34 peer-reviewed international journal papers and more than 100 peer-reviewed international conference proceedings.  Guy Drijkoningen  is the Work Package Leader for WP4.

Prof. dr. ir. Kees Wapenaar, Chair of Applied Geophysics and section head of the Section of Applied Geophysics & Petrophysics, is the leading expert in passive seismic monitoring. For his achievements in seismic interferometry he has received multiple awards, e.g., the Virgil Kauffman Gold Medal Award of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) in 2010. He has (co-)authored more than 130 peer-reviewed international journal papers and (co-)authored more than 225 peer-reviewed international conference proceedings. He is Editor-in-Chief of Geophysics, member of the Executive Committee of SEG, and member of many scientific committees and review panels.

Prof. dr. Wim Mulder, Chair of Geophysical Imaging Methods (0.2 fte), is an expert on imaging methods with a special interest in Controlled Source Electromagnetic (CSEM) modelling. He also works as a research scientist at Shell International Exploration & Production BV. He has (co-)authored more than 50 peer-reviewed journal papers and 90 peer-reviewed contributions to conference proceedings, and holds several patents. He is associate editor of Computational Geosciences. In this project, Prof. Mulder will work in an advisory role.
