Dr. Pepijn Van De Ven

Biography

Pepijn van de Ven is a Senior Lecturer in the department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Limerick (UL). Pepijn received an MSc in Electronic Engineering from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands in 2000. He subsequently worked for Philips in the Eindhoven based Philips Research Laboratories as a Research Scientist. There he invented, designed and developed analogue/RF building blocks for 3G mobile telecommunication sets.

In 2002 Pepijn obtained an IRCSET award to pursue a PhD at the University of Limerick on the ‘Identification and Control of Marine Vehicles Using Artificial Intelligence Techniques'. After finalizing his PhD in 2005, Pepijn had several postdoctoral positions in the area of wireless technologies and technologies for ambient assisted living before becoming a Senior Research Fellow in 2007.

In 2018 he joined UL's teaching staff as a Senior Lecturer. Pepijn has secured numerous national and international research awards totalling more than €1.7 million in funding to UL and is currently UL lead on the UK MRC funded PROACTIVE project with King's College London and the University of São Paulo. Pepijn's research interests are the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning to mobile sensing for biomedical applications with a particular focus on the area of eMental Health. Furthermore Pepijn has a keen interest in mobile app development for the Android OS





Research Interests

Pepijn's interests revolve around the support of (mental) health interventions using mobile ICT. He is particularly interested in assessing user context and behaviour such as to inform the delivery of intervention specific information exactly at the right time. Another area of interest are tools for intelligent care provider support.

Pepijn's research has been supported by the following grants:

Teaching Interests

My teaching interests reflect my broad interest in electronic engineering and computer engineering with modules ranging from basic electronics to analogue IC design (undergraduate and masters level) and programming. Currently, I am responsible for design and delivery of a module on Android programming.
