Profile Summary

Dushan is a John Harvard Distinguished Science Fellow in Imaging and the principal investigator of Wadduwage Lab at Harvard. Broadly trained in biomedical optics, computer science, and electronic engineering, Dushan works at the intersection of optics, machine learning, and biology to develop new computational imaging systems and algorithms. In collaboration with Peter So's group at (MIT), Wadduwage Lab pioneered De-scattering with Excitation Patterning (or DEEP) to enable fast computational multi-photon imaging through scattering tissue. Currently Dushan's group is developing "Differentiable Microscopy" a generalized data-driven optical design paradigm for Biophotonics.

Dushan did his PhD at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) under Professors Peter So and Paul Matsudaira. Before joining Harvard, he briefly worked at the MIT Laser Biomedical Research Center (LBRC). Prior to his PhD, he worked as a lecturer and instructor in the department of Electronic & Telecommunication Engineering, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.

In his free time, Dushan likes to fanatically binge-watch, terribly paint, and nomadically travel.​​
