Jernej Hribar is a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Communication Systems since October 2022. His MSCA action – TimeSmart – investigates the applicability of the novel Age of Information metric in smart grids. From 2019-2022, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the CONNECT Centre for Future Networks and Communications at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. He was involved in an international collaborative project between Trinity College Dublin and Tsinghua University using machine learning techniques to assist future networks with decision-making problems in smart cities. He received an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2014 and a Ph.D. from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, in 2020. His PhD focused on improving the sustainability of large-scale sensor deployments using reinforcement learning and leveraging the freshness of correlated information measured by the Age of Information metric.
His research interests include age of information, reinforcement learning, deep learning, smart grids, and embedded systems.
