Wouter Ouwens – Eindhoven University of Technology

 
 

Wouter-OuwensHe received his Bachelor of Science degree Electrical Engineering from the University of Technology Eindhoven and is currently in the final stages of his Master graduation project. He is interested in combination of signal processing and the implementation on platforms (e.g. GPU, smartphones, embedded platforms, etc.). Due to this interest he started an internship at Sorama (http://sorama.eu/), a spin-off company of the TU/e which is specialized in visualizing sound and vibrations. During this internship, he implemented a far-field sound visualization technique called beam-forming on a GPU, using a 1024 channel microphone array. This application was demonstrated in a Dutch TV-program called “De Wereld Leert Door”(see video below).

Interested by the combination of developing acoustic visualization algorithms and the implementation of these algorithms on embedded platforms, he continued working for his Master graduation project on the implementation of acoustic algorithms on embedded platforms for new applications. During this research he is supported by a small research group called Parallel Architecture ReSearch Eindhoven (PARsE), led by Henk Corporaal.

Besides his graduation work, he works part-time at Sorama as Embedded Systems and Software engineer. He develops a commercial implementation for beam-forming on a GPU and helps developing currently available Sorama software.
