Ronny Bockstaele received a degree in electrical engineering from the Universiteit Gent, in 1996. After this, he worked as a research engineer at the University of Ghent, department of Information Technology (INTEC), on RCLEDs and parallel optical interconnect systems, with a grant from the IWT. He received his PhD degree in 2001.
From May 2001, he combined two jobs: technical manager of the IO project, at the INTEC department, and opto-electronics consultant at Phocon, his photonics consultancy company.
From 2006 to 2011, he was part of the team that founded the spin-off company Trinean.
As from 2011, he re-joined the group and is in charge of the coordination of the IWT-SBO GlucoSens project.
He is member of the IEEE, SPIE and IMAPS.
