Dilantha Gunawardana

Biography

I'm a university lecturer and scientist by day and a dreamy moonlighting poet who burns the midnight oil on his poetry blog. I was educated at University of Melbourne [Ph.D. and B.Sc.(Hons) in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology] and currently serve as a Senior Lecturer in the Molecular Plant Sciences. I was born and have lived most of my life in Sri Lanka, but I'm infused with traces of influence from Australia and the Philippines where I have resided for significant time periods. I consider myself an old-fashioned romantic and a drifter of fate who meanders like a river unknowing of it's course. I am also a prime example of a late bloomer who loves the little things in life - quirky trivia, haiku poems and fireflies.
