About the Presenter:
I did my undergraduate studies in Sri Lanka and received a fellowship to come to Canada to do my M.Sc. degree in 1997 at the university of Toronto. I joined department of materials science and engineering at University of Toronto in 1999 to do my Ph.D. and I was financially supported by NSERC and National Research council, Ottawa, Canada. I was received a NSERC fellowship to do my post-doctoral research work at dept. of biomedical engineering, university of Toronto. I was interested in using gold nanoparticles as a versatile biomedical platform to smoothen the interface between biomedical field and nanotechnology. My research work related to my post-doctoral work is published in Nano Letters journal and ACS publications has declared those papers as one of the most read articles. Right now I work as a scientific associate at university health network, Canada, and am working with a team of experts on incorporating field of nanotechnology into radiation medicine program
