Nisa completed her BSc degree in University of Colombo specialised in Zoology in 2018 and is now a PhD student at the Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga. As an undergraduate student, she was lucky enough to study about cave invertebrates as the final year research project for the first time in Sri Lanka which made her interested in the field of Entomology. Working in the project “Freshwater insect assemblages as indicators of water quality” as a research assistant enhanced her interest. In CSU, her current research investigates the chemistry behind dung attraction, pheromones involved in beetle’s reproduction or colonisation with the aim of developing of suitable trapping method for introduced dung beetles in Australia.
