I'm an Archivist working and residing in Sri Lanka. My research and practice interests focus on human rights archives, survivor-centred approaches, building community archives, participatory description, oral histories, and the description and preservation of human rights records. I'm an Associate Member of the International Council on Archives (ICA).

I read for an MA (Hons) in Politics at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2018, as a Chevening Scholar, I read for an MA in Archives and Records Management (ARM) at University College London, where I was awarded the Sir Hilary Jenkinson Prize (2018/19).
