Monash Professor awarded AISRF research grant24 October 2012
Professor Emanuele Viterbo, Associate Dean Research Training and a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, has been awarded a research grant under the Australia-India Senior Visiting Fellowships 2012-2013.
Professor Viterbo will be collaborating with Professor B. Sundar Rajan from the Indian Institute of Science on the project “Wireless network coding: practical lattice code constructions.”
“Since I joined Monash in 2010, I have been developing my research links with Professor Sundar Rajan from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc.), Bangalore, one of the world leading researchers in the field of coding for wireless communications. I recruited, as a postdoc in my Software Defined Telecommunications Lab, one of his former PhD students Dr J. Harshan.” Professor Viterbo said.
The Australia-India Senior Visiting Fellowships program aims to assist Australian researchers from the public, not-for-profit and private sector to collaborate with partnering institutions in research and academic pursuits such as visiting lectureships.
These fellowships are supported by the Australia-India Strategic Research Fund (AISRF), established to help strengthen alliances with our Indian counterparts as well as participate in cutting edge research.
“This fellowship came at the right time for me and is a great opportunity to develop my research network in India. This will be my first visit to IISc and India and I expect to attract the interest of more young researchers to the area of Wireless Network Coding for future collaboration and PhD exchange.”
Professor Viterbo is one of 33 Australian researchers to be chosen to participate in this program. The Faculty would like to congratulate him on this prestigious achievement.
