Persoonlijk profiel


Working with industry constantly poses inspiring innovation challenges. Once we formulate these as well-defined fundamental new research problems, breakthroughs can happen. That inspiration led to my most-cited publications.

Research profile

Jean-Paul Linnartz is Part-time Professor in the Signal Processing Systems group. He focuses on algorithms for intelligent lighting systems and wireless communication networks. He is also an internationally recognized thought leader in the field of security with noisy data.  

Linnartz holds more than 60 granted patents. His publications about electronic watermarks, anonymous biometrics, radio communications (OFDM, MC-CDMA, random access) and Optical Wireless Communication have been cited more than 10,000 times. His research ideas are exploited in three successful ventures. As Senior Director at Philips Research, he headed research groups on security, wireless connectivity and IC design. At Signify (Philips Lighting), he is CTO of the LiFi venture. 

Academic background

Jean-Paul Linnartz obtained his MSc in Electrical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 1986. After a year of working on Radio Propagationat TNO, he did his PhD at Delft University of Technology, graduating in 1991 on traffic analysis in Wireless Networks. As Assistant Professor at the University of California at Berkeley, he worked on autonomous driving and wireless multimedia (Infopad). After being appointed as Associate Professor at Delft University of Technologyin 1995, Linnartz joined Philips Research, becoming Senior Director in 2002 and Research Fellow in 2007Currently, he is with Signify (Philips Lighting). In 2006, he returned to TU/e as Professor, initially in Cognitive Radio and currently in Signal Processing.
