I graduated with a bachelor's degree (B.Sc.) in Zoology in 2015 and a master's degree (M.Phil.) in Animal Ecology in 2021 from the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. My research interests are in Malacology, Animal Ecology, Mathematical modeling and Wildlife Biology. Currently, I am studying how temperature affects predator-prey interactions at the gene level and population level with the aid of Paramecium-Didinium models under Dr. John DeLong in the School of Biological Sciences.
