I have been working as senior lecturer in Political Science at the University of Peradeniya. My research interests are largely on quality of governance, corruption, institutional trust, public service delivery and minority rights. I teach governance, public policy, human rights, development administration and research methodology at both bachelors and postgraduate levels over the last ten years. I have published several peer reviewed journal articles and book chapters in reputed journals and publishing houses. I have coordinated two waves of governance and trust survey in Sri Lanka (2015 and 2020) under NORHED project on Policy and Governance Studies in South Asia.
