M.Sc. Prashanth K. H. Sheshagiri

PhD Researcher

Prashanth Kumar Herooru Sheshagiri is a PhD Researcher at Deutsche Telekom Chair for Communication Networks. His primary research is in Post-Shannon Communication. Post-Shannon aims to increase the efficiency of communication system by introducing novel information theory and coding techniques. Currently, he is researching Novel Spread spectrum techniques by utilising the idea of “Medium as message” and implementation of these spread spectrum techniques in Software Defined Radios. The motivation for this research is to practically realise Post-Shannon in SDR.

Prashanth completed his MSc at RWTH Aachen in 2021 and finished his B.E. at MVIT Bangalore, (affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University) in 2016. He has experience in working on Software Defined Radios in companies like National Instruments, Dresden and AKKA Technologies, Köln (currently AKKODIS) and did his master thesis on 5G MIMO Codebook design at Rohde & Schwarz, München.
