Subhash Lakshminarayana

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 Department of Telecommunications under the guidance of Prof. Merouane Debbah and Mohamad Assaad 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.
