Eric van Doorn, Ph.D.
As Chief Scientist of IAI, Dr. van Doorn is focused on building IAI’s research program in Radio Frequency sensing. He has pioneered and patented several new technologies and products within IAI including a novel RF-based sensor for in vivo hydration sensing, IAI’s ARGUS perimeter intrusion detection systems, a UAV mounted radar for moisture in soils and snow packs, a RF-based sensor for health monitoring of wiring, and encryption methods based on RF channel sounding. Recently, Dr. van Doorn is focusing on maturing and transitioning RF and other company-wide technologies at IAI for commercial applications and insertion in large government programs. Dr. van Doorn also has a solid history in the application of sensors for experimental physics.
Dr. Eric van Doorn received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the Free University in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 1987 and 1991 respectively, and a Ph.D. in Physics from Duke University, Durham, NC in 1997 majoring in physics of fluids. After his Ph.D. Dr. van Doorn was a postdoctoral researcher at Yale’s Department of Mechanical Engineering focusing on turbulence research, and a research scientist at the Chemical Engineering Department at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. Eric joined IAI in 2000 and has since held various positions at IAI including those of Director and Principal Scientist.
