Jan Plachy received the BSc, MSc and Ph.D. degree in telecommunication engineering from the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic in 2012, 2014 and 2021, respectively. Currently, he works as a researcher at the Department of Telecommunication Engineering at the same university. He was on internships at CEA-Leti, France (2014), EURECOM, France (2016 and 2019) and Bar-Ilan University, Israel (2017). Participated in FP7 TROPIC project founded by the European Commission, with a goal of designing a path selection algorithm for distributed computing and has participated in many national research projects focused on mobile networks. He is currently involved in multiple national and international research projects focused on Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for the provision of users’ connectivity. His research interests cover optimization of mobility management and radio resource management of both communication and computing resources in future mobile networks. He published 12 conference and journal papers in IEEE and Elsevier. He continuously develops 6Gm testbed and prepares demos to demonstrate the research done within the 6Gm lab. From July 2022, he also works as R&D Technical Product Manager at Deutsche Telekom in T-labs Berlin.
