Asela K. Kulatunga joined the Department of Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering from August 2007. He received the BSc Eng. in Production Engineering from the University of Peradeniya in 2000. After the graduation he served the same department for short period and subsequently joined as a lecture to the Department of Industrial Management of Wayamba University of Sri Lanka where he developed new courses for undergraduates and in-plant training programme. Later he received Presidential scholarship from Sri Lankan government and Centre of Excellent for Autonomous systems scholarship from Australia to pursue postgraduate studies in University of Technology, Sydney, Australia and received his PhD in Engineering in 2013. He joined Department of Production Engineering in 2007 while he was pursuing postgraduate studies and became a senior lecturer in 2013. In November 2015 he won a gLink Erasmus Mundus Research Fellowship to pursues his postdoctoral research at Chair of Maritime Business and Logistics till September 2016. His research includes Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Lean and Sustainable Manufacturing. He has served in various international and local panels throughout his career and act as a reviewer in many peer reviewed indexed journals too. He has published more than 80 research articles which includes book chapters, journal articles and conference papers. Furthermore, he has chaired International Conference on Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) 2018 which was held in Peradeniya Sri Lanka and has chaired several special sessions on Sustainable Manufacturing at ICSBE and Lean Construction at ICCMSE, which were held in Kandy Sri Lanka. He teaches courses in Manufacturing Planning and Control, Manufacturing Systems, Product Design and Development, Industrial Engineering, Lean and Sustainable Manufacturing at undergraduate level while Operations Management, Sustainable Construction, Sustainable Manufacturing and Logistics and Supply Chain Management at postgraduate level. He served as the Director – Engineering Workshops & Stores of Faculty of Engineering, UoP from May 2018 to May 2019 and Postgraduate Coordinator at Department of Manufacturing & Industrial Engineering from 2016 to 2019.
