Alle-Jan van der Veen is professor and chair of the Circuits and Systems group at TU Delft. The group covers signal processing algorithms and digital system design, with applications in communication, audio, biomedical, radio astronomy, and automotive sensing.
He is a Fellow of the IEEE and of Eurasip. He was Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and IEEE Signal Processing Letters, and an elected member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Board of Governors. He was chair of the IEEE SPS Fellow Reference Committee, chair of the IEEE SPS Signal Processing for Communications Technical Committee, member of the IEEE SPS Sensor Array Multichannel Technical Committee, member of the IEEE SPS Awards Board, member of the IEEE TAB Periodicals Committee and Periodicals Review and Advisory Committee, and Technical Cochair for ICASSP-2011 (Prague).
He currently is Director of Publications of Eurasip (overlooking 3 Elsevier and 6 Springer journals), chair of the Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal Committee, and chair of the IEEE SPS Signal Processing Theory and Methods Technical Committee. He is also member of the IEEE Medals Council, and member of the IEEE SPS Technical Directions Board.
He received an NWO-STW VICI award (personal research grant of 1.2 ME), and two IEEE SPS Young Author Best Paper awards.
His research interests are in the areas of array signal processing and signal processing for communication, with applications to radio astronomy and sensor network localization.

Data reduction and image formation for future radio telescopes
The future SKA telescope will produce large amounts of correlation data that cannot be stored and needs to be processed quasi real-time. Image formation is the main bottleneck--can compressive sampling and advanced algebraic techniques help?
Sensing Heterogeneous Information Network Environment
How can heterogeneous resources (people, mobile sensors, fixed sensors, social media, information systems, etc.) self-organize for answering information needs?
Radio astronomical calibration and imaging techniques
New, larger and more complex radio telescopes bring new challenges. Foremost among these is the calibration of the data in order to remove atmospheric and instrumental effects which corrupt the exceedingly faint signals from cosmic sources.
Reliable and fast wireless communication for lithography machines
Connecting a sensor network on a moving platform to a control unit; this requires high-speed links with low latency, and accurate wireless clock synchronization.
Separation of AIS Transponder Signals
AIS is a VHF communication system for ship transponders. Seen from a satellite, transponder messages overlap. The aim is to separate these using an antenna array.
Low-frequency distributed radio telescope in space
Below 15 MHz, the ionosphere blocks EM signals from the sky. Therefore, can we design a radio telescope in space, using a swarm of inexpensive nano-satellites? Accurate localization and clock recovery is important.
