Subhash Lakshminarayana

Welcome to my webpage! I am a research scientist at the Advanced Digital Sciences Center (ADSC), a research center established by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC) in Singapore. Simultaneously, I am also a research affiliate at the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL) at UIUC. 

Previously, I held joint post-doctoral researcher appointment at Princeton University working with  Prof. H. Vincent Poor and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), Singapore collaborating with Prof. Tony Q.S. Quek. I received my PhD in the field of wireless communications at  the Alcatel Lucent Chair on Flexible Radio and the Department of Telecommunications under the guidance of Prof. Merouane Debbah at Ecole Superieure d'Electricite (Supelec) Paris, France in Dec. 2012. Prior to that, I received my M.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Ohio State University in 2009 working with Prof. Atilla Eryilmaz.

The main focus of my PhD was on physical layer communications. Subsequently, after my PhD, I tried to shift my focus towards topics such as security of cyber-physical systems  and optimization in smart grids. To summarize, my main research interests include:
  • Security of Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Integration of Renewable Energy and Energy Storage in Power Grids
  • Wireless Communications & Signal Processing
