I'm a postgraduate student at University of Colombo, Sri Lanka and a researcher working on Sri Lankan biodiversity. My primary research interest is Odonata but I am also interested in a wide range of macrofauna with special interests in beetles, arachnids and birds.

My work on Odonata is primarily on their taxonomy and biogeography. I've been studying Sri Lankan Odonata for over a decade and have widely traveled around the country for research work. Apart from my personal research I also contribute to Odonata studies and conservation by popularizing them through publications, social media and conducting talks/workshops. I have authored a field guide on the Odonata of Sri Lanka (2017) and contribute to both global and national red list assessments of Sri Lankan Odonates.

My observations in iNat are mainly focused on insects and other arthropods of Sri Lanka that I encounter during my field work and biodiversity I observe during my travels in other countries (primarily India). I also contribute to iNat by providing identification to a wide range of Sri Lankan observations, South Asian observations on Odonata and other taxa I'm familiar with.
