Welcome. I’m Yudhanjaya Wijeratne, an SFF author and data scientist from Colombo, Sri Lanka. I wrote Numbercaste, The Inhuman Race, and other stories. My work spans big data, public policy and futurism.

I currently lead the Algorithms for Policy team at LIRNEasia, a nonprofit think tank working across the Global South. I co-founded Watchdog Sri Lanka, a factchecker. When not doing one or the other, I write, get into repetitive arguments with my cat, and experiment with machine-generated art.

RECENT WORK

"Wijeratne's ability to adroitly splice through the complexity of real, contemporary world affairs and politics is reflected in his fiction....entwined with characters that are finely drawn, and rooted very much to very human failings even as they strive for a greatness that outlives time and place."
Sanjana Hattotuwa
Groundviews
"...part of a new wave of Sri Lankan and South Asian science fiction writers."
