Gosala Kulupana received the B.Sc. Engineering degree (First Class) in electronic and telecommunications engineering from the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, in 2011 and the PhD degree from Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP), University of Surrey in 2017. His PhD was around application of error correction algorithms for High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) video transmission. Following his PhD, he worked as a Research Fellow at CVSSSP, University of Surrey where he contributed to two international research projects. In 2018 he joined the video compression team at BBC R&D as a researcher engineer. Currently he works as a Lead R&D Engineer in the video compression team.
While working for the BBC, he contributed towards the development of Versatile Video Coding (VVC) standard and lead a Innovate-UK project SEQUOIA. Gosala is an author of several IEEE conference papers and journal publications and holds few patents for video compression related technologies. One of his research papers on fast VVC encoding algorithms received the Top-10 paper award in the Picture Coding Symposium (PCS) 2021. His current research interests include video compression, video streaming, High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos, and picture quality assessment.
