Arjan Meijerink was born in Almelo, the Netherlands, in 1976. He received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering (both with honors) from the University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands, in 2001 and 2005, respectively.

In 2000 he was a Trainee at Ericsson Business Mobile Networks in Enschede, developing error concealment techniques for Bluetooth voicelinks. From 2001 to 2005 he was a Research Assistant in the Telecommunication Engineering Group, carrying out his Ph.D. research in the Coherence Multiplexing project, resulting in the thesis Coherence multiplexing for optical communication systems. From 2005 to 2007 he was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the same group, working on photonic beamformers for broadband phased array receive antennas, using fully integrated, ring resonator-based optical beamforming networks. This involved the system-level design, theoretical performance analysis, and experimental prototyping of dedicated beamformers for airborne satellite reception (the SMART project) and radio astronomy (the Broadband Photonic Beamformer project).

From 2007 to 2011 he pursued a tenure track as an Assistant Professor in the Telecommunication Engineering Group. In 2009 he was a Visiting Lecturer in the Wireless Communications Research Group at the Queen’s University in Belfast, Northern Ireland, U.K., and in 2010 he was a Visiting Scholar in the Wireless Devices and Systems (WiDeS) Group at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, U.S.A.

In 2011 he obtained a tenured position as an Assistant Professor in the Telecommunication Engineering Group.
