Where I came from…

I got my primary education at K/Kamburugoda Vidyalaya and secondary education at Royal College Colombo.
I was an undergraduate at the university of colombo and specialized in computaional physics.
I also completed the Bachelor of Information Technology from UCSC.
I’ve completed my Ph.D. in the field of robotics and computer vision

My academic interststs….

I like to teach others. Its my second nature. I also like to invent new things and currently have several patents.
I believe in cross deciplinary research. Most of my researches are not limited to physics. They vary from studying animal behaviours to predicting share market.
My favourite subjects include, physics, computer science, biology and philosophy.

Personnal Life…

I like to live a simple life style.
