I teach across various levels (Stage 1 to Stage 4) of undergraduate built environment courses (Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying and Construction Management) and distant learning postgraduate modules and involve in the supervision and examination of PhDs. 

Academic Background

I have a PhD in Carbon Management from Northumbria University and a first-class undergraduate degree in BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying from University of Moratuwa. I also hold a post graduate certificate in Academic Practice

Research Interests

My research interest lies in the areas of quantity surveying and carbon management of the built environment. 

Funding

RICS/CHOBE funding, The State of Global Surveying Education, £15,000 – 2019

Professional Memberships

I am a Fellow of Higher Education Academy and an Associate Professional of Green Building Council of Sri Lanka.
