Filip Lemic received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in electrical engineering and information technology from the University of Zagreb, Croatia in 2010 and 2012, respectively. In 2017, he received his Ph.D. (magna cum laude) from the Telecommunication Networks Group (TKN) of the Technische Universität Berlin (TU 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 at Berkeley (UC Berkeley), USA 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 Marie Curie postdoctoral 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. In 2019, he did a research stay at the Terahertz Wireless Communications (TWC) Lab of the University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (UM-SJTU JI), China, supported by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO). He has co-authored more than 40 peer-reviewed scientific papers and 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).

Research Interests

His research interests include context and location-aware, mmWave, THz, sub-GHz, battery-less, and opportunistic (nano)communication and networking, as well as testbed infrastructures and performance evaluation in wireless networks.
