I graduated with a B.Tech (Eng) degree securing second class (upper) honors from the Faculty of Engineering Technology, The Open University of Sri Lanka in the year 2015. Gained more than 5 years of experience in the IT industry by working for SummIT Business Systems and Computer2000(Pvt)Ltd as a Software Developer and a Senior Software Engineer from 2007 to 2013. Joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering as a Visiting technician in 2013. Joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as a Demonstrator in 2014. After serving for 3 years in the capacity of Temporary Demonstrator, started working as a Temporary Lecturer in 2018.  Re-joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department as a Lecturer (Probationary) in January 2019.

My research interests are computer vision, data science, soft computing, and machine learning, and Virtual, Augmented, and mixed reality.
Apart from teaching and research, I involve in various activities at the university and the community. I am also an all-around player of the university staff cricket team. Moreover, I am a regular O+ blood donor and a fundraising volunteer of the Cancer hospital donation team.
