Pavel Mach received M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Telecommunication Engineering from the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic in 2006 and 2010, respectively. During 2006 and 2007, he joined Sitronics R&D center in Prague focusing on emerging mobile technologies and he was involved in research activities of Vodafone R&D center at Czech Technical University in Prague between 2005 and 2008. Now, he is senior researcher in 5G mobile lab founded in 2015 at CTU in Prague focusing on 5G and beyond mobile networks. He was involved in several European projects such as FP6 FIREWORKS, FP7 ROCKET, FP7 FREEDOM, and FP7 TROPIC. He was/is principal investigator in national research projects focused on allocation of radio resources to cognitive small cells and combination of device-to-device communication with visible light communication. He has published 3 book chapters, more than 70 conference or journal papers, and he is co-inventor of three U.S. patents. He was on internship in EURECOM, France in 2019. His current research areas include radio resource management for device-to-device communication specifically focused on relaying techniques and incentive mechanisms given to the relaying users; new techniques for dynamic functional split for C-RAN based network architectures, positioning of flying mobile base stations, and mobile edge computing.
