I am a PhD student at University of South Australia, Adelaide. I am working with Prof. Javaan Chahl and Dr. Yee Wei Law. My research interests include Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Human Action Recognition, Drones and Robotics. I did my masters in Industrial Automation at University of Moratuwa, where I was advised by Dr. Harsha Abeykoon. I did my bachelors in Electrical and Electronics at University of Peradeniya.
