About Me

I am currently working as a Senior Lecturer in the Mathematics Department at the University of Peradeniya.  I obtained my B.Sc. (Sp.) degree from the University of Peradeniya in 2008. I completed an MSc in Financial Market Analysis from Hertfordshire University, United Kingdom. I obtained my MSc and Ph.D. in Mathematics from Clarkson University, USA.  After completing my Ph.D., I worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the Mechanical Engineering Department and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Clarkson University.  My research interests are mainly in the development of numerical methods for simulation of application in science and engineering fields.  My dissertation research focused on reduced-order modeling techniques for fast simulation of radiation transport.
