Mr. Thyago Monteiro


Short Bio:

Thyago Monteiro obtained his Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Campina Grande (Paraíba, Brazil) and his Master Degree in Electrical Engineering at the State University of Campinas (São Paulo, Brazil) in 2014 and 2017, respectively. From 2018 to 2019, he worked as an invited researcher at the University of Coimbra (Portugal), and now he is conducting a Ph.D. at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). His background includes experiences in the fields of Optical Networks, Digital Signal Processing, Physical Layer Security, Polar Codes and Machine Learning.

Title: Machine learning techniques for system performance prediction

Overview: Due to the different transmission properties across the entire bandwidth and complex interaction of multiple system parameters such as input signal power,number of channels, link type, modulation format, symbol rate, and channel spacing, the prediction of optical communication system performance is a challenging task. In this project, a data-driven approach using a machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques is proposed for performance prediction of WDM optical communication systems operating across the entire wavelength range from O- to L-band. The investigated models will be developed to complement the physical-layer analytical model for further optimization and in-service network control. The aim is to explore the techniques from machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize the performance across the entire spectrum in terms of: reach, information rate and energy efficiency.
