Gerard Janssen received the MSc degree from Eindhoven University of Technology in 1986, and the PhD degree from TU Delft in 1998. In 1986, he joined FEL-TNO where he was involved in radar cross-section modeling, radion direction finding, interference cancellation and wideband propagation mesudements. In 1992, he moved to TU Delft where he currently is Associate Professor. His research interests are in wireless communications, especially narrowband multiuser detection, digital modulation techniques, channel modeling, diversity techniques and ultrawideband communications and positioning.
