Hello, I am Geert Langereis and I am the 13th generation of Sijbrant Dulles van de Langereijs, who was born in Niedorp, somewhere halfway the 16th century. I received a M.S. in Electrical Engineering (1994) and Ergonomics (1994) from the University of Twente, the Netherlands. In addition, I obtained a biomedical specialization and endorsement for the study of Electrical Engineering. In 1999, I received a Ph.D. from the same university in the field of self-learning multi-sensor systems for monitoring washing processes. That research was paid for by Unilever.
From 1999 until 2009 I worked at the industrial research laboratories of Philips and NXP.
In 2009 I joined the department of Industrial Design of the TU/e as an assistant professor. In this occupation, I consolidated my expertise in smart algorithms for multi-sensor wearable systems, applied to care and healthcare applications. My research focused on sensor systems around the human body, and the algorithms needed to tailor the sensed information into useful merits.
Since August 2014, I work at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Eindhoven. First as initiator and coordinator of research on sensors and measurement theory, and currently as strategy developer for research.
The proven expertise is in the field of smart multi sensor systems. This was applied in many fields like algorithms for process optimization, electrochemistry, electrophysiological systems, microcontrollers, silicon micromachining, human stress estimation and lumped element modeling. This work is available in many publications, patents and some books on measurement theory and sensors.
Besides this study and work related background, I am married and have two daughters. We live our happy life in the city of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. We have two ponies (Jenny and Mickey).
