I am a postdoctoral researcher in Textile Management and currently engaging in the CLOSeD project. My research interests include sustainable and circular fashion, reverse supply chain, recycling, and remanufacturing. I hold a PhD degree in Sustainable Consumption from the University of Manchester, UK, and a bachelor’s degree in Textile & Clothing Technology from the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. Before I started my career as a postdoctoral researcher in March 2022, I worked as a senior lecturer at the Department of Textile & Apparel Engineering, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. Previously, I have experience of working in both the textile and finance sectors.
