Mapping geothermal resources in Sri Lanka: Combined use of Magnetotellurics and
Transient Electromagnetic method from the University of Peradeniya, Sri
Currently, he is a PhD student at CET, focused
on enhance cover depth estimation using Magnetotellurics and Passive seismic
methods in exploration targeting.
