Dr. Jeevani W. Jayasinghe joined the Department of Electronics of Wayamba University of Sri Lanka in 2008 and has been a Senior Lecturer since 2014. Previously, she worked in the industry for more than 2 years as an Engineer.

She obtained PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from University of Peradeniya with a Research Fellowship at Ramon Llull University, Barcelona, Spain. She was a Visiting Fellow of Macquarie University, NSW, Australia in the Autumn 2018.

Dr. Jayasinghe is a pioneer in the establishment of the Faculty of Technology and served as the Founding Head of the Departments of Engineering Technology and Construction Technology. Currently, she is the Head of the Department of Electrotechnology. She has visited universities and institutions in Spain, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Nepal and Australia for academic or research activities or conferences.

She was the Secretary of IEEE Sri Lanka Section in 2019 and the Chair of IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Sri Lanka Section in 2018.
