Vishnu Narayanan Moothedath
I am a doctoral student in the Information Science and Engineering (ISE) division under the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. I am doing research under the supervision of Prof. James Gross and co-supervision of Prof. György Dán. My current research focuses on improving the performance, energy efficiency, and responsiveness of edge computing systems and cellular networks using statistical guarantees and optimization. One line of research aims to reduce the data captured, communicated and processed, achieved through (1) intelligent and cost minimizing sampling and (2) efficient hierarchical offloading policies. A second line of ongoing reserch focuses on stochastic characterisation of 5G cellular networks in terms of metrices like delay, latency and resource utilization with specific focus on URLLC indstrial networks.
I completed my master's degree (M.Tech) in Communication Systems from IIT Madras under the project supervision of Professor Srikrishna Bhashyam and bachelor's degree in Electronics and Communication from NIT Calicut. As part of my Master's thesis, I worked on the optimum distributed beamforming on MISO downlink, where a novel algorithm was proposed to find the optimal transmit power allocation with a sum-power constraint.
Before starting my PhD in March 2021, I worked in the cellular industry for almost 5 years with Intel and Apple in their respective LTE/5G-NR baseband modem group where I was responsible for a few physical/MAC layer features including Random Access.
