Dr Indika Wanninayake, MSc, BSc
Indika Wanninayake studied Electrical and Electronics Engineering in University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka graduating in 2004. In 2008 he joined Kingston University London as a lecturer and prior to his appointment at Kingston University he has worked as an Aircraft engineering instructor for Srilankan Airlines Ltd. Currently, he is working towards his PhD degree on a part time basis with the Centre for Robotics Research, King’s College London. Indika has a strong interest in application of sensing and instrumentation in robotic and aerospace engineering.
Description of Research
The research is based on modeling of modeling tool-tissue interaction dynamics in surgical applications such as minimally invasive surgery and also on design of tactile sensors for robotics and medical applications.
