Get to know the people involved in ARCH-India. From senior experts to early career researchers, learn about their careers, what makes them tick, and how they are collaborating.
This month, we meet Dibbendu Roy, a Research Associate working on future generations of mobile wireless communication systems. Dibbendu is part of the Melbourne India Postgraduate Academy (MIPA) – a joint initiative consisting of established researchers and joint PhD candidates from the University of Melbourne and a group of India’s elite research universities.
What are you working on right now?
Currently I am part of a project under the Government of India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). I am working on the design and development of fifth generation (5G) and beyond mobile communication networks. Specifically, I am investigating how artificial intelligence can assist in supporting ultra-reliable low-latency applications over next-generation networks.
What sparked your interest in your field?
I would say it has been a gradual development. Being a telecom engineer, I was always fascinated by network design and associated mathematical problems related to graph theory, game theory and optimisation. Being an engineer, it’s always interesting to find out how new technologies can be developed and deployed for improved performance.
How are you collaborating with colleagues in India/Australia?
I am part of the Melbourne India Post Graduate Academy, which is a collaboration between the University of Melbourne (UoM) and Indian research universities, including my university – the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Kharagpur.
