Eranga Ukwatta joined Carleton University as an Assistant Professor in 2016. Prior to that, he was a multi-center postdoctoral fellow in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University (2013-2015) and Sunnybrook Research Institute (2014-2015). His primary research is driven by the emerging need for robust image analysis methodologies for patient-specific analysis and modeling of cardiovascular structure and function. He was a recipient of NSERC postdoctoral fellowship, JHU BME Centennial postdoctoral fellowship, and MITACS Elevate postdoctoral fellowship (declined).
