Profile Summary

Heidi Ottevaere is a professor at the Faculty of Engineering of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) since October 2009. She graduated from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 1997 as an electrotechnical engineer with majors in Photonics and received her PhD degree in Applied Sciences in 2003 from the same university. Since 2019 Heidi chairs the Applied Physics and Photonics Department (TONA) of the Faculty of Engineering that is responsible for the Photonics Education Curriculum at Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
She is responsible for the Instrumentation and Metrology platform at the Photonics Innovation Center and for the research unit ‘biophotonics’ of the Brussels Photonics Team B-PHOT. She is coordinating and working on multiple research and industrial projects focusing on the design, fabrication and characterization of different types of photonic components and systems in the field of biophotonics, interferometry, holography and imaging.
