Kanchana Bandara (PhD)

enthusiast of marine science, zooplankton ecologist & ecological modeller


I am Kanchana Bandara, a marine scientist who lives and work in northern Norway. I was born in Sri Lanka―where I completed my graduate education.

The mid-career south-to-north geographical relocation shifted the focus of my research from tropical benthic communities (e.g. true corals, seagrass) to high-latitude pelagic communities.

Presently, I am oriented towards studying the behaviour and life histories of high-latitude pelagic zooplankton communities, particularly through mechanistic simulation modelling and high-frequency acoustics.
