Professor Malin Premaratne is an electrical engineer with diverse interests in physics, mathematics and computer science. He specializes in theory, modeling and simulation of light propagation through different media such as optical fibers, active semiconductors and biological media. These interests have naturally led him to investigate emerging state of the art technological areas such as surface plamsons polaritons that results from light interacting with metals and arftificial material composites (metamaterials) with extraordinary ability to control light. He has pioneered many novel techniques in theory, modeling and simulation of light interaction with guided and scattering media and published over 250 research papers (150+ Journals) and one book. Malin has won over $1.8 million direct funding and about $750,000 on computer resources and time from competitive grants agencies including the Australian Research Council (ARC) for this work.
