Dr. Sanath Darshana Kahagalage is a Research Associate at the Capability Systems Centre, University of New South Wales Canberra at ADFA, Australia. He was an honorary fellow at the University of Melbourne from 2020 to 2022. His research interests include simulation-based optimization techniques, model-based decision-making frameworks under deep uncertainty, and many-objective optimization techniques to solve complex decision-making problems and developing tools and methods for early predictions of the failure location of landslides and man-made slopes. Sanath received his PhD and an MSc by research in Applied Mathematics from the University of Melbourne and Texas Tech University, respectively.
