Devika Dass

Research Fellow

Devika Dass is a CONNECT Research Fellow at Trinity College Dublin.

Devika’s research interests include advanced modulation formats and their applications in converged optical access networks, characterization of Si-based photonic devices, photonic mmWave generation, short-reach intra-DC connects and passive optical networks.

She received her Bachelor of Technology in Electronics and Telecommunication from Amity University, India in 2014. In 2015 she received her master’s in Communication Engineering from VIT University, Vellore, India during which she interned at CSIR-National Physical Laboratory. She has modeled the attenuation of free space optical communication (FSOC) in urban environments and experimentally analyzed the attenuation of FSOC in the presence of fog. Later in 2017, she joined IITD as a research fellow and analyzed Radio over Fiber technology for different modulation schemes in simulations and experiments.

She completed her Ph.D. in the Radio and Optical Communications Lab at Dublin City University in 2023, and her research presented the deployment of a novel, integrable, ultra-flexible and low noise SiP optical source to facilitate reconfigurable millimeter wave frequency transmission systems, multi-service environment by pairing it with optical switch fabric and high bandwidth intra-datacenter interconnection.
