Professor Don Kulasiri obtained B.Sc. (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering (1980) at University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, M.S. (1988) and PhD (1990) at Department of Biological Systems Engineering, Virginia Tech, U.S.A. His main research interests are in developing mathematical and computational models of biological and environmental systems to explain the experimental data, and to pursue these interests he has been developing research programmes at Lincoln University, Christchurch, New Zealand since 1991. He was appointed to a personal chair (professorship) in 1999 at Lincoln University, and he has been a visiting professor at the Computation and Mechanics division, Stanford University (6 months in 1998), Department of Mathematics, Princeton University (6 months in 2004) and Mathematical Institute, Oxford University (6 months in 2008 and a month in 2010). He has been a supervisor or co-supervisor of 30 PhD students so far, and co-authored over 100 journal publications and three books. He has been active in Computational Molecular Systems Biology for the last six years.
