Nadun's profile picture


Hello, I'm Nadun. I'm currently a fourth-year P.h.D student at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Michigan Technological University. I grew up in a beautiful city called Kandy, in Sri Lanka. I received a B.Sc. degree in Mathematics from the University of Peradeniya, Kandy Sri Lanka. My wife, Dhananjani Eriyagama, is also a graduate student at the Department of Chemistry, Michigan Technological University.

My research focuses on using the Radial basis function method to solve partial differential equations numerically. I use the RBF-FD method to discretize PDEs.  I'm specifically interested in applications in Geoscience fields.

Mathematics Teaching & Education

Teaching math is my favorite hobby. Currently, I'm teaching the online elementary differential equations course at the MTU math department. I developed the online course and its contents to fit the modern online course curriculum. I'm also interested in flipping our classrooms into a student-centered class. My teaching research focuses on using technology to enhance student engagement and success. Apart from Mathematics, I enjoy traveling and photography. Making math videos is one of my favorite hobbies! I have two YouTube channels about Mathematics.
