About me

I am from Sri Lanka. In my spare time, I like to sing songs and read classics.  

I am joining the CDT because I am excited to carry out studies related to the emerging trend of using robotics in agriculture and I believe that CDT could lay a strong foundation for my future career.  

I am looking forward to moving to Lincoln because it is a fantastic place to live and study in UK and it is a perfect mix of outstanding natural beauty and lively atmosphere.  

I will be studying my PhD at the University of Lincoln.  

I chose to study my PhD at Lincoln because it seems to provide a good study-friendly environment and I cannot think of a better place to study than the University of Lincoln.  

My career goal is to pursue further research within my research area and to work in the academia. Before joining the CDT, I was working as a research assistant at Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT), Sri Lanka. 

A fun fact about me is that my retirement plan would be to live in a little cottage by a calm river and to be an old cat lady.
