I secured my B.Sc degree in chemistry from the Institute of Chemistry Ceylon, College of Chemical Sciences, Sri Lanka (2010 – 2013) and on completion of my degree I was employed as a Research Scientist at the Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC) for a period of 1.5 years. I was awarded a prestigious Chancellor’s International Scholarship from the University of Warwick and I joined as a PhD student in 2015.
I am currently working on nano-structured Copper electrodes and exploring the potential of exploiting plasmon-active Copper films in thin film Photovoltaics.
