Ronald van Elburg is a lecturer in the bachelor degree programme Advanced Sensor Applications of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences and in the master degree programme Sensor System Engineering. His teaching is focussed on the mathematics underlying signal processing, control theory and machine learning.

Ronald van Elburg is co-founder of SoundAppraisal BV. SoundAppraisal develops technologies needed to estimate human sound perception from ‘sound textures’. Sound textures are features indicative for structure in sound and were first developed for use in the Sensor City Sound project.

Ronald van Elburg is also involved in a computational neurophilosophy research project together with Fred Keijzer and Ot de Wiljes addressing the origin of nervous systems through simulation of potential nervous system precursors.
