About Me

Tharindu Dewasurendra is a Senior Lecturer attached to the Department of Mathematics at the University of Peradeniya.  Dewasurendra graduated with a Ph.D. from the Mathematics Department at UCF in the Summer of 2019.  He received a B.Sc.( Hons.) Degree in Mathematics from the University of Peradeniya in 2009. During grad school, Dewasurendra worked as a GTA in the EXCEL/COMPASS programs for two years and four years for the Department of Mathematics. He has mentioned for Professor Lee H. Armstrong GTA Award for Distinguished Teachers and received Graduate Research Excellence Award during this time. He also received an M.Sc. Degree in Mathematics from the University of North Florida in 2013 and the University awarded him the International Student Merit Academic Award and the Outstanding Graduate Math Student Award. Dewasurendra has published more than10 Papers in refereed International Mathematical Journals, few of them are Q1 SJR ranking journals. His research interests lay predominantly in the fields of nonlinear dynamics and computational mathematics. Dewasurendra's most recent publication is "A Method of Directly Defining the inverse Mapping for a nonlinear partial differential equation and for systems of nonlinear partial differential equations".
