Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO)
Gayandhi De Silva was born in Sri Lanka and later her family migrated to Australia, where she received her education. While completing her Bachelor of Science degree, she developed an interest in astronomical research. She continued her studies and graduated with a PhD in Astronomy and Astrophysics in 2006.

Gayandhi has always been interested in the Buddha’s teachings and understanding the Dhamma.
