I am a conservation ecologist by training with a primary research focus on ecological community interactions between native and invasive aquatic species. I have a B.S. in Zoology from University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka and a Ph.D. in Environmental & Conservation Sciences from North Dakota State University under the supervision of Dr. Craig Stockwell. My research interests span broad fields of community ecology, invasion biology, and conservation biology.
