Samitha Sulakshana Somathilaka

PhD Student
Personal Summary


Samitha is currently pursuing his PhD research on Modelling & Simulation of Bacteria-Based Molecular Communications Systems under the thematic area of Bio-Nano Communications at TSSG funded by the VistaMilk, a SFI research centre.  He is currently investigating the bacteria natural signalling system to design realistic simulations of whole-cell biosensors for AgriTech applications. The goal is to investigate molecular communications systems that support the development of robust and reliable bacteria-based biosensors.
