Dook van Mechelen is an Associate Professor with both the Signal Processing Systems (SPS) group and Integrated Circuits (IC) group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research focuses on developing novel sensors and sensor systems, bilaterally connecting basic research to major application domains within the future smart world. His expertise ranges from optical spectroscopy, with an emphasis on the THz range, to industrial sensor development, signal processing and condensed matter physics.

The future autonomous world is in need of novel sensors concepts, consisting of smart signal processing and advanced technologies, to be validated by society.


Dook van Mechelen received his M.Sc. degree (with honors) in Physics at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in 2005 and earned his PhD in experimental Condensed Matter Physics from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 2010. From 2011 until 2020, Dook worked at ABB Corporate Research, Switzerland, where his research matured THz spectroscopy for sensing applications. In September 2020, Dook was appointed Associate Professor in both the Signal Processing Systems and Integrated Circuits groups at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
