Hi, I'm a social science researcher specialized in Spatial planning and Transportation. I have 10+ years of experience in both academia and industry. I have worked with a variety of clients with different socio- economic research needs; Customer perceptions/ satisfaction, Sustainable Development, Tourism, Market analysis, Governance and Public policy, Health care, Community empowerment, Macro and Micro economics and much more. Let's work together. I wish you a fruitful research ahead.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND, will hire Duminda anytime again!!! Very communicative, clear thinking, tidy working method, very professional. Very strong in English. He is not "just doing", but actively thinking into the project. Everything delivered before deadline. Many thanks for all your support in my project. Looking forward to our next project!!!
I was satisfied with the delivered work and gave it a 5-star rating. Quality, explanations, communication, and readiness to answer all my questions - everything was perfect. Even more, when I have decided to go with another solution that was proposed and already performed, Duminda made another round of testing and has drawn new results. The timing was a bit off, but it was no problem for me. I believe that in the future, he will be able to estimate the amount of the needed effort more accurately
