Dr. Neel Jinadasa

Research Assistant in 1988

Where has your exposure at NIFS taken you?

I was reading to my MSc degree in environmental geochemistry and completed my MSc degree titled "Defluoridation of fluoride rich water". I was able to publish my research in reputed international journals on decontamination of fluoride and heavy metals using naturally available materials such as clay and serpentine. Also I had an opportunity to specialize instruments like XRD, FTIR, GC and GCMS. After that I was able to get a postgraduate scholarship to pursue my higher studies towards a PhD degree in a Australian University.

Work genuine and honest. Do not worry about negative results. Never give up.
