Hi! I am Shilpa Waduwawara. I am from the loveliest place on earth, Sri Lanka. I graduated from the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka. I joined the Moss lab in Fall 2009 and am pursuing a masters degree in marine biology. My main interest is in animal behavior, but recently I have taken an interest in molecular biology too. My current research is on water manipulation by locomotory  and auricular comb plate cilia of beautiful but sometimes stubborn Mnemiopsis.
