Profile Summary

Malin Premaratne is an electrical engineer with diverse interests and physics, mathematics, bio-optics, and computer science skills. Malin’s main contributions are in theory, solution methods, computation, and pioneered many novel techniques, in theory, modelling and simulation of light generation (e.g., lasers and spasers) and light interaction with guided (e.g., optical fibre) and scattering media (e.g., biological tissue) and published over 250 journal papers (and additional over 100 conference papers), two books and four book chapters. Much contemporary scientific knowledge arises from modelling, and its importance is, if anything, growing. With the proliferation of high-performance computers, the current practice creates complex models and solves them numerically to study their behaviour.

Malin has spent one-third of his career in industry before joining academia. From 1998 to 2000, he was with the Photonics Research Laboratory, The University of Melbourne, where he was the Co-project Leader of the CRC Optical Amplifier Project and was also associated with Telstra, Australia, and Hewlett Packard, USA. From 2001 to 2003, Malin worked as a consultant to several companies, including Cisco, Lucent Technologies, Ericsson, Siemens, VPISystems, Telcordia Technologies, Ciena, and Tellium. Since 2004, he has guided the research program in high-performance computing applications to complex systems simulations at the Advanced Computing and Simulation Laboratory, Monash University, Clayton, where he holds many senior positions and is a Full Professor. He has visiting appointments with The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Caltech, Oxford University, The University of Melbourne, and Institute of Optics University of Rochester. Professor Premaratne is a Fellow, Optical Society of America (FOSA), a Fellow, Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers(FSPIE) and a Fellow, Institute of Engineers Australia (FIEAust).
