Senior Lecturer

BSc. (Chem. Special, Peradeniya), PhD. (Wayne State University, USA)

Instrumental Expertise: GCMS, AAS, FTIR, UV-Vis, Electrochemistry, Langmuir-Blodgett technique (LB)

Research Interests:

Instrument development: Recent project involve development of an automated device to monitor fermentation stage in black tea manufacturing process. This includes development of components for color variations detection, electrochemical changes, physical parameters (temperature, moisture, humidity, pH)

Ceramic based filters for water purification: Development of ceramic filter materials for heavy metals, organic matter, dye removal with different add-materials.
