Dr. Randika Jayasinghe is a Senior Lecturer and Head of the Department of Biosystems Technology at the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka. Randika graduated from the University of Sri Jayewardenepura with a Honours degree in Forestry and Environmental Sciences in 2009. She is an Australia Awards Alumni and a PhD of the University of Western Australia. Her PhD research focused on the practical feasibility and perceived social impact of community-based projects for waste management in Sri Lanka. Dr Randika Jayasinghe identifies waste as a valuable material for communities in developing countries. Her research is aimed at promoting the sustainable use of available resources, minimising social and environmental impacts and maximising the use of discarded materials. She coordinates the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) funded project: “Australia-Sri Lanka University partnerships to develop community-based recycling businesses”. Through this project, the University of Western Australia together with the implementation partner, Waste for Life works with three local universities – University of Moratuwa, University of Sri Jayewardenepura and University of Jaffna to develop a unique capacity building educational program that supports development of community-based composite waste upcycling and manufacturing businesses. Dr. Randika is also a one of the 25 recipients of the 2018 Green Talents award; the international Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development awarded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to promote the international exchange of innovative green ideas.
