Ruud Vullers

Ruud Vullers (SM’12) received the M.Sc. degree in physics at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands, in 1994. He received the Ph.D. degree from K.U. Leuven, Leuven, Belgium, in 2000, for his thesis entitled, “Lithography on nanometer dimensions, using local oxidation of titanium thin films by atomic force microscopy”. He worked for Philips Research Laboratories, on the fabrication and design of thin film coils for use in magneto–optical Storage and recordable Blu-ray Disc development. In 2006, he joined IMEC at the Holst Centre, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where he was Principal Scientist in body area networks and is currently the Guest Researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, in the Microsystems group. He has (co-) authored more than 150 papers in the field of wireless sensor nodes and energy harvesting technologies. He is a Member of the MEMS, PowerMEMS, and BodyNets Technical Program Committee. He holds 11 patents (of which three are US).
