Hi there, my name is Upamali Peiris, a PhD student at CQUniversity Australia’s Bundaberg campus.
I am from Sri Lanka and completed my Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from Wayamba University of Sri Lanka and a Master of Science in Crop Science from University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka.
I’ve always dreamt of doing a PhD , especially in Australia. Whilst employed as a Lecturer at Wayamba University of Sri Lanka, I was made aware of this wonderful university, CQUniversity Australia or ‘CQU’ located in the agricultural heart of Australia. The School of Medical and Applied Sciences and its Precision Horticulture Research group made me interested in doing a PhD here, where I was fortunate to meet my supervisors Professor Philip Brown and Dr. Chengyuan (Stephen) Xu. This encouraged me to apply at CQUniversity in the hope of completing my further studies.
