She is a staff member at IDLab, a core research group of imec with research activities embedded in Ghent University and University of Antwerp. Ingrid Moerman is coordinating the research activities on intelligent Wireless Networking (iWiNe) at Ghent University, where she is leading a team of about 35 researchers. In parallel, Ingrid Moerman is Program Manager of the 'Deterministic Networking' track, part of the CONNECTIVITY program at imec, and in this role she coordinates research activities on end-to-end wired/wireless networking solutions driven by professional and mission-critical applications that have to meet strict Quality of Service requirements in terms of throughput, bounded latency and reliability in smart application areas like industrial automation, vehicular networks, safety-critical operations, professional entertainment, etc. Her main research interests include real-time software defined radio, intelligent cognitive radio networks, dynamic spectrum sharing, coexistence across heterogeneous wireless networks, time-sensitive networks, next generation wireless networks (5G/6G/...), and experimentally supported research.

Ingrid Moerman has a longstanding experience in running and coordinating national and EU research funded projects. At the national level, she is particularly active in demand-driven research with small, medium, and large Flemish enterprises. At the European level, she has coordinated several FP7/H2020 projects (CREW, WiSHFUL, eWINE, ORCA) and is involved in many H2020 and Horizon Europe projects related to 5G/6G connected vehicles (5G-MOBIX, 5G-CARMEN, 5G-Blueprint, DEDICAT-6G, HEXA-X-II, TrialsNet, 6G-SHINE). She is also coordinating the EU Erasmus+ CBHE project DigiHealth-Asia. Ingrid Moerman is further highly active in several European discussion groups that drive the 6G roadmap (e.g., 6G SNS).

Ingrid Moerman has an excellent research track record (more than 800 publications in international journals or conference proceedings, around 17 500 citations and an h-index of 54, many keynote and invited presentations, 18 prizes/awards).

Ingrid Moerman is further chair of the board of directors of A.S.T.R.I.D. (company responsible for emergency communication in Belgium) and she is a board member of FITCE Belgium (broadband connectivity and services organisation focussing on knowledge sharing and networking).
