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 algorithms and system design for generating Common Randomness in Software Defined Radios. Common Randomness has applications not just in physical layer secret key generation but also in identification, and network coding. The motivation for this research is to practically realise Semantic Based Communications (Identification) 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.
