From Oct 2019 until Apr 2020, I will be doing a research stay at the Terahertz Wireless Communications (TWC) laboratory hosted by Prof. Chong Han. The TWC lab is a part of the University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (UM-SJTU JI) in Shanghai, China. The main goal of my research stay is to develop accurate channel models for in-body terahertz nanoscale propagation. An additional goal is to extend the IDLab’s collaboration network by initiating long-term research and student exchange agendas with UM-SJTU JI, especially with the TWC lab. My research stay is supported by the FWO grant for a long stay abroad.
Filip Lemic received his BSc and MSc in electrical engineering from the University of Zagreb, Croatia in 2010 and 2012, respectively. In 2017, he obtained his PhD (magna cum laude) at the Telecommunication Networks Group (TKN) of the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany. In 2014, he was awarded a three-years long Young Scientists' scholarship by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). He was a visiting researcher at the Qualcomm Ubiquitous SWARM Lab and Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC) of the University of California, Berkeley, US in 2015 and 2016, respectively. His research stay was supported by the UC Berkeley's stipend for visiting scholars. In 2018, he took a short break from the academia and joined FIWARE Foundation as a senior research engineer and technology consultant. Currently, he is a post-doctoral researcher at the Internet Technology and Data Science Lab (IDLab) of the University of Antwerp, Belgium. He is also a senior researcher at the imec research institute. He has co-authored more than 40 peer-reviewed scientific papers. He has been involved in a number of international research projects, notably EU EVARILOS, EU eWine, NIST's PerfLoc, and UC Berkeley's beyond-5G (xG).
His research interests include context and location-aware, mmWave, THz, sub-GHz, battery-less, and opportunistic communication, as well as testbed infrastructures and performance evaluation in wireless networks.
