A PhD Student in Computer Architecture at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

My main interests are in finding applications that are bottlenecked by computation time, and seeing what hardware/software techniques can make them go faster.

I completed my BSc (Eng) from University of Moratuwa (Sri Lanka) specializing in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering. For our final project, our group (of 4) worked on implementing the latest H.265/ HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) decoder on an FPGA and as an outcome we managed to demo a HD (1920x1080) real time decoder on an FPGA.

Post graduation, we formed a startup which extended the HD decoder to 4K. Our implementation is the first to completely decode 4K HEVC video on an FPGA.
