It is my great pleasure to present you Rusiru Gambheera – one of the brightest minds in the Department of Mathematics from the University of Colombo. He received his education from the Rajapaksha Central College in Weeraketiya. He is famous for being the guy who was ranked first in the Island in the 2012 GCE Advanced Level exam, but he chose to enter the Faculty of Science to pursue his dream of becoming a Scientist. He is currently reading for his PhD at the University of California San Diego – USA.
