In January, Richard Mugisha, started his PhD-position at STC Research Centre. He will work with 5G and focus on latency and reliability.

Can you tell a little about your background?

I received the Master’s degree in wireless communication from Lund University in 2018. Since 2018, I was Assistant Lecturer where I spent most of my time teaching at the University of Rwanda. I love teaching and during my PhD I will be doing some teaching along with my research and I´m really looking forward to it.

What is it that you are going to investigate at STC?

In my master thesis I worked with wireless communication, now I will narrow down my research to 5G and a focus on latency and reliability. How to maintain communication all time without delay. The topic of my thesis work is “Ultra Reliable and Low-latency communication (URLLC) for time-critical applications”.

How do you like it here so far?

I´ve arrived at the end of January 2020 and then I had a little of a struggle to reactivate my Swedish personal number and bank account which I had previously during my Master’s studies in Sweden. But now it is active again and I can relax. Sundsvall, that is in the middle of the Sweden, is little bit different to Lund that is close to Malmö and Copenhagen. But I hope I will get the chance to learn how to ski now when I´m in the northern part of Sweden. I think that many people are a little bit scared of the winter darkness but now spring is coming soon with the sunshine.
