I obtained my  B.Sc. degree (1st class honors) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, in 2011, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Newcastle, Australia, in 2017. From February 2017 to June 2020, I was with the School of Electrical  Engineering and Computing, The University of Newcastle, as a Post-doctoral Research  Fellow.   


My research interests include:

  • Information and coding theory
  • Error correction coding
  • Wireless communication
  • Rateless coding
  • Machine-to-machine communication
  • Machine learning 
  • Neural networks
