About

André van Schaik received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands, in 1990 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1998. He is a Research Professor in Bioelectronics and Neuroscience at the University of Western Sydney, Australia, and an Australian Research Council Queen Elizabeth II Research Fellow. His research focuses on various aspects of neuroscience: neurophysiology, psychophysics, computational neuroscience, neuromorphic engineering, and bioelectronics. He has authored or co-authored more than 100 papers and is an inventor of more than 30 patents. He is the Director of the Bioelectronics and Neuroscience (BENS) research group at the University of Western Sydney and a co-founder of three start-up companies. André is a senior member of the IEEE, member of the EPSRC College and a board member of the Institute of Neuromorphic Engineering. He is a Past Chairman of the Sensory Systems Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and a member of the Analog, BioCAS, and Neural Network Technical Committees of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.
