Ingrid Moerman received her degree in Electrical Engineering (1987) and the Ph.D. degree (1992) from the Ghent University, where she became a part-time professor in 2000. She is a staff member at IDLab, a core research group of imec with research activities embedded in Ghent University and University of Antwerp. Ingrid Moerman is coordinating the research activities on intelligent wireless networking (iWiNe) at Ghent University, where she is leading a team of more than 30 members. Ingrid Moerman is also Program Manager of the 'Deterministic Networking' track at imec and in this role she coordinates research activities on end-to-end wired/wireless networking solutions driven by time-critical applications that have to meet strict QoS requirements in terms of throughput, latency bounds and reliability in smart application areas like Industry 4.0, vehicular networks and professional entertainment. Her main research interests include cooperative and intelligent radio networks, real-time software defined radio and software defined networking, time-sensitive networks, dynamic spectrum sharing, coexistence across heterogeneous wireless networks, vehicular networks, open-source prototyping platforms, software tools for programmable networks, next generation wireless networks (5G/6G/…), and experimentally supported research.
Ingrid Moerman has received 16 awards and prizes during her career, of which 9 best paper awards, 2 prizes awarded by FWO (Research Foundation - Flanders), the imec Prize of excellence 2001, one MSc Thesis Award (as promoter), and one best demo/exhibit award (at ICT 2013). The most recent and most prestigious awards are two prizes of 750 000 USD each in Phase 1 (Dec. 2017) and Phase 2 (Dec. 2019) of the DARPA Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2) with team SCATTER (https://www.darpa.mil/news-events/2017-12-21a, https://www.darpa.mil/news-events/2018-12-19).
