Dr. V. (Venkat) Roy


I am a statistical signal processing engineer interested in modelling the spatio-temporal characteristics of environmental processes. Currently, I am working as a post-doctoral researcher on the topic of ‘’rainfall nowcasting’’. 

In 2010, I received the Master of Technology (M.Tech.) degree in Radio Physics and Electronics from the University of Calcutta, India. I was an Erasmus Mundus “Mobility for Life” scholar (funded by European Commission) for one year (2011) at the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands. In this period, I received the best student paper award at the 18th IEEE Symposium on Communications and Vehicular Technology in Benelux, Ghent, Belgium. In 2018, I obtained my PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) of the Delft University of Technology. During my Ph.D., I had actively collaborated with the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI). From September 2017 to April 2019, I worked as a radar signal processing engineer (automotive applications) at NXP semiconductors, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. My research interests include statistical signal processing, compressed sensing, signal processing for environment monitoring and radar signal processing.
