BA (Colombo) MA (Colombo) PhD (Wellington)
I am a senior lecturer at the Department of International Relations, Faculty of Arts, University of Colombo. I currently teach introductory course for International Relations, Geopolitics and Research Methodology at the undergraduate level and critical theories in International Relations, Gender, Migration and Research Methodology at the postgraduate level both in Sinhala and English medium. I use decolonial teaching techniques in the class room. Apart from teaching, I am also the Director of Undergraduate Studies at Faculty of Arts, UOC.
As a researcher, I am more drawn to explore dynamics in international migration, challenges of democratic citizenship regime, transnationalism and Sri Lankan diaspora. I am more interested in multidisciplinary research that cross International Relations, Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology. Currently I am working on understanding the ways in which Sri Lankan immigrants’ make sense of their home and host country citizenship.
