About Duminda Dissanayake

I am an evolutionary biologist interested in contemporary natural selection. I love integrating field research and molecular studies with theory and the way they interact with each other so well. My current research combines ecological and genomic principles to study the evolution of sex-determining systems, especially in reptiles. Further, I am interested in understanding the origin and evolution of species and identifying significant evolutionary units to resolve major challenges in species evolutionary biology. Also, I have continued my research on topics in broader natural history, snakes venom, diversity, and many other taxa.
