Hello! I'm Buddhika.
I received my PhD from the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Cheryl Grady and Morris Moscovitch. I studied the neural bases and behavioural consequences of interactions between new learning and prior knowledge.
I also completed a postdoctoral fellowship with Janice Chen and Christopher Honey in the Psychological & Brain Sciences department at Johns Hopkins University. I used narratives, online experiments and naturalistic neuroimaging paradigms, to examine how we remember and think about complex, real-world situations.
As of July 2021, I became an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Glendon, York University. In addition to running the M&M Lab, I teach a variety of courses, including Human Neuropsychology and Introduction to Experimental Methods.
Outside of research, I like to read stories and read about how magical stories are. I also like watching cartoons, basketball and cooking videos. Feel free to get in touch via email or twitter!
