A Big Hello to all R Voices! Isurika here from Sri Lanka
I’m a passionate individual who is committed to research-oriented teaching in the Higher Education sector. I always consider each of my students as a unique case study where I teach and learn from as they come from different socio-economic, ethnic, religious, mental backdrops. My career goal is to engage in sound research, quality, and illustrative teaching as a motivational role model. My research interests lie beneath the dynamic interdisciplinary perspectives of Urban Geography with specialties in Green Urbanism, Green Infrastructure Planning, and Climate Resilient Inclusive-Cities to realize the goal of Sustainable Development acknowledging the spatiotemporal dynamics all over the world.
My life slogan is “Aspire to Inspire before we Expire” meaning that it is essential that we return the worth of the free education we received so luckily; back to the enthusiastic learning communities who represent the next generation. I strongly believe that we rise only by lifting others, but should always monitor backstabbers. Being a topnotch of exploring our born potentials does a lot while molding ourself for what we are craving to do. Any day is no later than the days already wasted.
On a usual day, I would start my day with a hot cup of tea while listening to some blinks in the Blinkist app (not a promotion btw) ;) where I will gather my energy to start my day with afresh perspective. My hobbies inlcude taking part in webinars and virtual conferences as much as possible to upgrade my knowledge and attitudes on the contemporary global issues to reorient myself to become a responsible global citizen.
I really enjoy, learn and improve myself with R Voice platform and feel the genuine excitement while navigating through each post, discussion and comment.
I wish this platform will flourish and every voice will be considered worth and find something to be cherished. It is indeed a pleasure to find a secure place to share our genuine ideas and get feedback in the battle against work-life-academic balance.
