Kapal Dev

Research Fellow

Kapal Dev is a Research fellow at Trinity College Dublin.

His education profile revolves over ICT background i.e. Electronics (B.E and M.E) and Telecommunication Engineering (PhD) within various aspects of Wireless Communication.

He has been active in research when he started his PhD within the Wireless Communications domain at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Since then, published several research papers in International conferences and impact factor Journals. From 2016, he has been doing reviews of several reputed conferences and journals such as; IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, Future Generation Computing Systems, Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies, IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference, WF-IoT 2020- World Forum on The Internet of Things, etc.

Since 2018, he has been very active in leading Erasmus + International Credit Mobility (ICM) and Capacity Building for Higher Education projects and so far, succeeded in getting funding for four projects. Currently, he is working on submitting few new proposals under the Erasmus + 2020 call for various program such as ICM, CBHE and Knowledge Alliance.

Currently, he is working as Post-doc at CONNECT center, Trinity College Dublin where he works on Science Foundation Ireland (ENABLE) funded project which is in the area of 5G and DLT. Specifically, the project aims to develop a “5G Slice Broker” which will allow for the dynamic allocation of spectrum as and when required by customers. In addition, the project aims to develop a data off-load capability that will allow a 5G operator to off-load its subscribers to a third-party WiFi network and pay the WiFi operator for the data usage. In both cases, we will make use of distribute ledger technology (DLT) to log and reconcile the data usage on third-party networks.

His future long-term goal is to perform high-quality research within the domain of Wireless Communications Networks by using Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Blockchain technologies.
