Director & Vice President, Member and Geographic Activities
Martin Bastiaans is an Associate Professor in the Signal Processing Systems group, retired as of 2012. He taught electrical circuit theory, signal theory, digital signal processing, and Fourier optics and holography. His research covers different aspects of the general field of signal and system theory, and includes a signal-theoretical approach of all kinds of problems that arise in Fourier optics, such as partial coherence, computer holography, optical signal and image processing, and optical computing. His main current research interest is in describing signals by means of a local frequency spectrum.
Bastiaans has a long history serving as a member of the Electrical Engineering Research Committee, the Department Board and other departmental coordinator functions. He also has a long history with IEEE, from a longstanding relationship with Eindhoven Student Branch, to a IEEE Region 8 Directorship in 2013-2014. He currently serves as IEEE Vice President of Member and Geographic Activities. Bastiaans is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America and a Fellow of the IEEE.
