Dr. Jaya Prakash Varma CHAMPATI

Research Assistant Professor

    • PhD - University of Toronto, Canada
  • Joining date: November 2020


Hi there! I am Jaya Prakash — you can call me Jaya or JP. I hail from Malkipuram, a small coastal village in Andhra Pradesh, India. I received my PhD degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, Canada in 2017. Prior to joining PhD, I was part of the Mobile and Wireless Group developing the LTE MAC layer at Broadcom Communications, Bangalore, India. I received my master’s degree from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, India, in 2010 and my undergraduate degree from the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Warangal, India, in 2008.  Before joining IMDEA, I was a postdoc in the Information Science and Engineering Division, EECS, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.

My Motto: Research is our search for Truth and Truth doesn’t differentiate race, religion, country, caste, creed, etc.

A PhD position is available. If you are interested, please write to me  (include CV and transcripts).

I am interested in decision making, learning, resource allocation/scheduling problems that arise in networking and information systems, in general. Currently, my main focus is in modelling and analysis of Edge networks for supporting applications from Cyber-Physical Systems, and the Internet of Things. I am actively working on Age of Information, Learning at the Edge, and Computation Offloading for ML Inference. Some of the mathematical tools used in my research so far include Queuing theory, Stochastic Network Calculus, Design and Analysis of Approximation Algorithms, and Markov Decision Processes.
