Dr. C. Bruyninx manages the GNSS research group at the Royal Observatory of Belgium. As member of the EUREF Technical Working group, she is strongly involved in EUREF activities and more specifically the EUREF Permanent Network (EPN) for which she manages the EPN Central Bureau since 1996. At the IAG level, she chairs sub-commission 1.3 'Regional Reference Frames'. She is also active within the International GNSS Service (IGS). This is reflected by her membership in the IGS Governing Board, several of the IGS Working Groups as well as the IGS Infrastructure Committee. C. Bruyninx is also a member of the advisory editorial board of "GPS Solutions". Today, a large part of her activity focusses on the construction of the GNSS component of the European Plate Observing System (EPOS). Her research activities concentrate on the use of permanent GNSS tracking stations for different types of applications including reference frame maintenance and measurement of long-term ground deformations.
