Tharindu Liyanagunawardena is a Teaching Fellow in the Information and Communications Technology Research Group at the School of Systems Engineering, University of Reading.

I completed my PhD in 2012 and my thesis title was "Information Communication Technologies and Distance Education in Sri Lanka: a case study of two universities". Professor Shirley Williams and Professor Naz Rassool (Institute of Education, University of Reading) were my PhD supervisors. I also got guidance from Professor Andrew Adams (Meiji University, Japan). I featured in the University of Reading Woman in Research exhibition 2012.

My principle research interests lie in the area of social implications of information and communication technologies, especially eLearning. Currently I am working on several projects relating to OERs and MOOCs.

Explore the history, anatomy and intelligence of robots with this free online course. Test drive robots using exciting simulations. Robots today are roving Mars, collecting data in dangerous environments, hoovering our floors, lifting patients in hospital, building cars and entertaining us in films. And, if you share Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking’s world view, the super intelligent ones may one day bring about the end of the human race.
