My name is Nadeesha Dissanayaka. I am a graduate student in my first year at the University of Winnipeg's M.ENV. in Environmental and Social Change programme. I am reading my thesis under the supervision of Dr. Ryan Bullock, Canada Research Chair in Human-Environmental Interactions. I am originally from Sri Lanka, which is known as the pearl of the Indian Ocean. Moreover, pursuing a master’s degree at UWinnipeg allows me to receive a higher level education, and the flexibility of the MESC curriculum gives me a broad education and professional contacts. This M.ENV. in Environmental and Social Change program is of special relevance to my professional goals and career objectives. This interdisciplinary degree collaboration with Science and Art is really attractive to me, and this would certainly provide more exposure to the wider world of knowledge in the area of the Human Dimension of Natural Resource Management.
