Before joining the University of Derby in 2013, I worked at University of Strathclyde, University of the West of Scotland, Warwick Business School and the Open University of Sri Lanka. Throughout my career, I have received achievement awards for outstanding performance in teaching and doctoral supervision. I hold a PhD in Computer Simulation of Manufacturing Systems from the Sheffield Hallam University (UK) and a BSc (Hons) Special degree in Physics and Industrial Management from the University of Kelaniya (Sri Lanka). I am also a fellow member of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and a member of the Institution of Engineering Technology (MIET).

My research interests include operations and supply chain management, business improvement, systems modelling & simulation and sustainable operations. I have published a number of articles in reputable Journals and international conferences. I am currently serving as a regular reviewer for leading international journals including the Journal of Cleaner Production and Sustainability MDPI Journal.
