Piet Demeester is full professor in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at Ghent University (UGent). He is director of the IDLab-Department, part of imec and of Ghent University / University of Antwerp. IDLab (Internet Technology and Data Science Lab) counts about 350 researchers and is focussing on the following key areas : electromagnetics and high speed circuit design, wireless networks, fixed networks, cloud and big data infrastructures, multimedia processing, semantic intelligence, machine learning & data mining, AI for robotics and IoT. Piet Demeester became fellow of the IEEE in 2009 for “contributions to optical communication networks and technologies”. Piet Demeester holds an ERC Advanced Grant “ATTO: Ultra High Capacity Wireless Networking” (2017 – 2021). The ERC grant is focusing on a new generation optical/wireless networks to support distributed High Performance Computing in a mobile environment.
