Gerd Vandersteen was born in Belgium in 1968 and received the degree in electrical engineering from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Brussels, Belgium, in 1991.

In 1997, he received his PhD in electrical engineering, entitled “Identification of Linear and Nonlinear Systems in an Errors-in-Variables Least Squares and Total Least Squares Framework”, from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel/ ELEC.

During his postdoc, he worked at the micro-electronics research centre IMEC as Principal Scientist in the Wireless Group with the focus on modeling, measurement and simulation of electronic circuits in state-of-the-art silicon technologies. This research was in the context of a collaboration with the Vrije Universiteit Brussels.

From 2008 on, he is working as Prof. at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels/ELEC within the context of measuring, modeling and analysis of complex linear and nonlinear system. Within this context, the set of systems under consideration is extended from micro-electronic circuits towards to all kinds of electro-mechanical systems.

From 2011 on, he is director of the Doctoral School of Natural Sciences and (Bioscience) Engineering (NSE) at the VUB http://student.vub.be/phd/nse.
