PhD Student

Pillar / Cluster: Information Systems Technology and Design


Associate Professor Tony Quek


Jay Prakash received Bachelors in Electronics Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) BHU, Varanasi, India in 2013. Hes has been exploring wireless communication after his introduction to Software Radios (SDR) and Global Navigation system during his short internship with ISRO, India. He built upon the experience and designed improved SDR for GLONASS and COMPASS systems during his bachelors research.

After Bachelors he joined IISc, Bangalore where he designed frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) test bed and analysed MAC algorithms for cognitive radios. Having developed interest in physical layer by now he joined NETS project in iTrust, SUTD Singapore as Research Assistant. He worked on physical layer security algorithms. He designed setup for extracting double and multiple user key generation using physical layer properties.

He joined ISTD, SUTD as PhD student under Professor Tony Quek in Jan 2016. His research focuses on security methods using channel properties, friendly jamming algorithms, anti-jamming techniques. He is interested in designing light weight security methods and products for sprawling small wireless devices.
