Dr. Simsek’s research areas and interests:

-    Wireless systems; system level modelling and optimization,

-    Machine learning based self-organizing networks (SON); interference coordination, radio and network resource management, latency minimization and reliability maximization in multi-user wireless networks, load balancing, topology optimization

-    5th generation (5G) and beyond wireless networks and emerging use cases, (e.g., industrial automation, autonomous driving, massive Internet of Things (IoT) applications)

-    Tactile Internet, architecture design for remote control-based use cases including human and machine in the loop applications

-    Edge-automation; radio access network (RAN) abstraction, network (slice) management, dynamic network adaptation and optimization

“Especially, the necessity for a holistic view on wireless systems, starting from the network (edge) to the mobile device, and the highly inter-disciplinary nature of the emerging use cases within the fifth generation (5G) and beyond communication systems are highly encouraging me to further deepen my research in future wireless networks. My aim is to continue and expand my research towards the joint design, modelling, and optimization of the wireless edge and access networks by particularly focusing on heterogeneous use cases with diverse requirements together with industrial and academic partners.”
