Welcome. I’m Yudhanjaya Wijeratne (@yudhanjaya), an SFF author and data scientist from Colombo, Sri Lanka. I wrote Numbercaste, The Inhuman Race, and several other stories.
What I do: I write. I research with the Data, Algorithms and Policy team at LIRNEasia, a nonprofit think tank working across the Global South. I co-founded and help run Watchdog Sri Lanka, a factchecker. My work spans data science, linguistics, artificial intelligence, public policy, and futurism.
When not doing these things, I argue with the cat and experiment with machine-generated art.
