About

I’m Gert-Jan van Rooyen, an Associate Professor in Information and Communication Technology at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.  I spend most of my research time at the MIH Media Laboratory (the “Media Lab”) as the lab’s director. I focus on new media technologies: applying cutting-edge research in Telecommunications, Signal Theory and Software Engineering to the emerging ways in which humans communicate with each other and with computers. Web applications, mobile technology, and futuristic stuff like augmented reality (AR) are what drive me.

I live in Somerset West on the foothills of the Helderberg mountains, where I can watch the sun set over False Bay and Cape Point. I have a gorgeous wife (a fashion designer) and two fiendishly busy toddlers.

My publication record is available on Google Scholar.

My professional activities and network are available on LinkedIn.
