Summary

I am a first-generation student originally from Sri Lanka and currently living in the US to pursue graduate studies. I obtained my bachelors' degree in chemistry from the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka. I am currently working in Prof. Michael F. Brown's lab in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Arizona where we are investigating the photoactivation of archetypical G-protein–coupled receptor (GPCR) rhodopsin in the lipid membrane and detergent environments using a combination of molecular spectroscopic techniques (UV, IR, ssNMR, native mass spectrometry, and various scattering techniques) to aim at revealing how soft matter influences and structural changes in the activation of the GPCRs.
