dr. R.T. Rajan

Circuits and Systems (CAS), Department of Microelectronics

PhD thesis (Oct 2016): Relative Space-Time Kinematics of an Anchorless Network
Promotor: Alle-Jan van der Veen

Expertise: Navigation, Radio astronomy,

Themes: Signal processing for communication


Raj obtained his PhD degree in signal processing from TU Delft,The Netherlands in October 2016. Previously, he received his M.Sc (with highest honors) in Electronic science, with minors in Physics and Mathematics, from University of Pune, India.

In 2007-2008, he was a MIUR and INFN fellow with the Department of Physics at Politecnico di Bari, Italy, and a research assistant at CERN, Switzerland. From 2008 to 2014, he was a DSP engineer with the R&D team at ASTRON (Netherlands institute for radio astronomy). In the period from 2010-2015, he held consecutive research positions in TU Delft and UTwente. For a duration of 3 years, from 2015-2018, he was a researcher with IMEC, Holst center, Eindhoven, where he led the algorithm research for the IoT and the Gas&Ion sensor teams.

He returned to CAS in July 2018 as a Postdoctoral researcher, and is currently working on the PIPP-OLFAR project.

Combine multiple satellites into one single scientific instrument: a radio telescope in space

Projects history

Low-frequency distributed radio telescope in space

Below 15 MHz, the ionosphere blocks EM signals from the sky. Therefore, can we design a radio telescope in space, using a swarm of inexpensive nano-satellites? Accurate localization and clock recovery is important.
