Introduction

Dr. Rasara Samarasinghe obtained her B.Sc. Degree in Electrical Engineering with a Second class upper division Honors in July 2008 from the University of Moratuwa. After finishing her undergraduate studies she was recruited as an electrical engineer at Shin Nippon Lanka Pvt. Ltd. She was awarded an RMIT PhD Scholarship in 2009 to pursue doctoral studies at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. She completed her PhD in February 2014. After completing her doctoral studies she was recruited as an electrical engineer at United Energy Pvt. Ltd., which is a power distribution company in Melbourne, Australia. Since January 2015, she has been working in the department of Electrical Engineering as a Senior Lecturer.
