Biography Vineeth S Varma was born in Tripunithura, India. He obtained his Bachelor’s in Physics with Honors from Chennai Mathematical Institute, India in 2008. He then proceeded to join the Erasmus Mundus course in Optics and obtained Masters in Science and Technology from Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena in 2009 and Warsaw University of Technology in 2010. His areas of interest are Physics, Applied mathematics and Telecommunication. Since December 2010 he is working on his PhD aimed at finding the fundamental limits of energy on telecommunication and optimizing energy efficiency in networks. He is supervised by Dr. Samson Lasaulce at LSS and by Dr. Merouane Debbah at Supélec and is funded by France Telecom R&D (Orange Labs) and is also supervised by Dr. Salah Elayoubi from Orange Labs.
