PhD position summary/title: PhD candidate in Distributed (renewable) energy management

In this PhD thesis, the focus is on investigating a new distributed charging optimization strategy with a shared objective of reducing GHGE under specific constraints, spanning from technological constraints (e.g., storage capacities) to financial (e.g., limited budgets) or social ones (e.g., considering inhabitant habits, agenda…). ADMM-like state-of-the-art techniques will be considered to solve this distributed charging optimization problem. The use of blockchain (Distributed Ledger Technology) technologies for energy trading purposes (as in [Wa21]) will be considered, along with their impact in terms of CO2 emitted (e.g., resulting from mining, incurred transaction fees, etc.) and financial cost (e.g., fee induced by a transaction). The proposed algorithm will be evaluated using publicly available state-of-the-art datasets.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral candidate (Ph.D. student) focusing on the function of the human microbiome in chronic diseases

The human gut microbiome is a complex ecosystem which contributes essential functions to human physiology. Changes to the microbiome are associated with several chronic diseases characterised by inflammatory signatures which include autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases. The gut is a reservoir for extensive microbial “dark matter” in the form of soluble nucleic acids, (poly-)peptides and metabolites with bioactive properties. These molecules have so far eluded in-depth study. This gap in knowledge is limiting our understanding of the role of the human microbiome in governing human physiology and how changes to the gut microbiome impact inflammation-linked chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Parkinson’s disease (PD). As part of the ERC-funded ExpoBiome project, a gut microbiome-targeted therapeutic intervention, i.e. fasting, is being performed together with leading clinical partners in Berlin (Germany) and Kassel (Germany). Based on systematically collected samples, the aim is to identify and track common and disease-specific molecular signatures to predict the outcome of the therapeutic fasting regimen. Molecules which are associated with a reduction in inflammatory markers will be further investigated for their anti-inflammatory properties including using our unique human-microbial co-culture system called HuMiX. In summary, the project will yield functional insights into the effect of gut microbiome-derived molecules on clinical manifestations and will provide pointers towards key microbiome-derived molecules to control inflammatory conditions in the future.

PhD position summary/title: PhD candidate in Machine Learning at the edge of the Smart Grid

In this PhD thesis, the focus is on ML task offloading and resource allocation strategy under Fog-Cloud hybrid systems. More concretely, the research carried out in this thesis investigates how a given ML task can be divided into sub-tasks, and how those sub-tasks can be dynamically allocated between Cloud and Edge nodes under the multiple constraints of networking, security, computing power and energy consumption. This is known as a cost minimization problem under edge and cloud resource constraints, which is recognized as NP-hard [Ya18]. Federated and/or multi-task learning techniques will likely be considered in this respect, as they offer interesting features for task subdivision possibilities. The proposed ML task offloading strategy will be implemented and evaluated based on use case scenario defined in the (renewable) energy sector. The overall idea is to deploy the algorithm on nanogrid controllers that are limited in terms of computational capacity, memory and storage, which have to forecast future parameters such as anticipated energy demands and renewable generation outputs (e.g., predicted PV production).

PhD position summary/title: PhD candidate in Integrated Sensing and Communications for Emerging Wireless Networks

This project will focus on design, optimization and adaptation of a joint radar communication system for the high bandwidth high mobility scenarios. Works on an unified waveform for radar and communications is in its infancy, let alone for high mobility networks. A first research challenge, lies in determining the suitable optimization metric (Mean Square Error, Signal to Noise Ratio, Detection probability etc.). Challenges also arise in determining a parametric model for waveforms that can be used for different flavors of MIMO radar and deriving update methods (or optimizing) for the parameters in the presence of high-mobility leading to poor coherence times.

Software has been playing a prominent role in vehicle for many years now, as a large majority of the functions of a vehicle are mostly implemented in software. Some of next generation’s Electronic Control Units (ECUs) will be equipped with powerful System-on-Chips (SOCs), each containing several multicore processors with specific capabilities (e.g., lock-step execution for safety-critical code, low-power execution, etc). Larger ECUs routinely support hypervisors hosting Virtual Machines (VM) running OSes of different types (e.g., real-time, infotainment or general-purpose OS). Besides VMs, software containers are also technologies that start being considered for use in the automotive domain to ease software update.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Researcher (PhD Candidate) on Machine Learning-based Predictive Maintenance in Industry 4.0

Manufacturing companies in the Industry 4.0 era are increasingly looking for implementing Predictive Maintenance (PdM) to predict failures, classify faults, and optimize maintenance tasks. Artificial Intelligence (AI), and particularly Machine Learning (ML) techniques are applied to build such prediction, classification and optimization models. Although these models yield high performance in static scenarios, their performance becomes questionable during operational use due to two phenomena known as (i) “imbalanced data”: when predicting faults, the majority of the collected data/logs indicates a normal state of operation, whereas only a small fraction indicates faults; and (ii) model drifts (a.k.a, concept and data drifts): when changes happen within the statistical properties of the target class labels or within the independent features (e.g., due to perturbations resulting from a change in hardware, a defective sensor, a network malfunction, wireless interferences, etc.). While these two challenges (imbalance data & model drifts) have received significant attention in image recognition, they have been little investigated in the field of time series analysis and forecasting, which is at the heart of PdM. This PhD thesis will focus on investigating innovative approaches to progress the state-of-the-art in predictive maintenance (PdM) and Machine Learning (ML).
