Biography

Dr. Basnayaka is an Assistant Professor in School of Electronic Engineering at Dublin City University. Prior to DCU, he was with Institute for Digital Communication at the University of Edinburgh, UK from 2013 to 2019. He received a B.Sc.Eng (1st Hons) and a PhD degree, both in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, in 2006 and 2012 respectively. His current research broadly lies at the intersection of Wireless Communication and Applied Electromagnetism, and currently focuses on physical layer aspects of 5G, IoT and beyond 5G communication. He holds patents in key areas of wireless communication and one of which has also been licensed by industry. Dr. Basnayaka is the recipient of the best paper award at Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC-Spring) 2015 - the flagship conference of IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. He is a Senior Member of IEEE, USA - the largest professional organisation in the world for the advancement of science and technology. Dr. Basnayaka has also held full-time appointments at London Stock Exchange and Aberdeen Standard Investment (ASI), Edinburgh, UK. ASI is the largest active asset manager in the UK.

Dr. Basnayaka's particular research interests include physical layer aspects of wireless communication (currently for 5G, IoT and beyond 5G), digital signal processing techniques for wireless communication, multi-user and multi-antenna (MIMO) techniques, cellular and mobile communication, wireless communication with fading and interference, statistical performance analysis and computer simulation of wireless systems & networks, information theory for wireless communication, and electromagnetic effects and advancements in material science for next generation wireless communication.
