Stefan van de Beek was born in Voorthuizen, the Netherlands, in March 1988. He received the master’s degree in Electrical Engineering cum laude from the University of Twente, Enschede, in August 2012. His graduation project was performed at the National Institute for Standards and Technologies (NIST), Boulder – Colorado, and focused on characterizing reverberation chambers.

Since September 2012 he has been working as a Ph.D. candidate at the Telecommunication Engineering Group at the University of Twente, Enschede. Stefan is involved in the project “Strategies for the improvement of critical infrastructure resilience to electromagnetic attacks (STRUCTURES). His focus is on improving the robustness of wireless mission-critical communication systems against electromagnetic attacks. As an example, the susceptibility of the C2000 communication system used by the public safety organizations in The Netherlands has been tested.

At the CTIT Symposium 2014,  Stefan won the PhD Carousel with a 3 minute elevator pitch about his research activities. The price of €500 was provided by CTIT, the largest academic research institute in the Netherlands. In August 2015, Stefan won the Best Student Paper Award at the Joint International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility and EMC Europe with the paper titled: “Effect of Pulsed Interference on an ASK Receiver”.
