Biography

Graduated from the University of Colombo with a first class in 2007 but became an academic only at the Open University of Sri Lanka in 2007.

Research

My passion for  Communication and media studies began when I went on a field trip to “Lake house” as a school student. Good practices like writing for newspapers and being critical and sensitive on contemporary socioeconomic, cultural & political issues lead me to be a good communicator during my undergraduate studies. Communication plays a significant role in our day to day life as well as in the development process in a country. Many of my research focus on new media communication including social media and community development. My PhD research was also mainly on new media and rural empowerment.

The most recent research of mine are on social media, disaster communication and communication research. Apart from these areas, an audience based research has been done with the Ministry of Mass Media a few years back. Freedom of expression is key to Media and Communication studies. My three recent research are on right to information, Media ethics and Women and Media. I supervise several postgraduate students with a board range of research interests .
