Dr. Sathiparan is a senior lecturer attached to Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Jaffna. He obtained his B.Sc.(Eng) degree from the University of Moratuwa in Year 2002. He received his M.Eng and Ph.D degree from University of Tokyo in Year 2005 and 2008, respectively. He researched in the field of seismic retrofitting masonry structures. He continued this research in the same university as Post-doctoral researcher and JSPS Fellow from October 2008 to March 2011. Before he joined the University of Jaffna, he worked at University of Ruhuna as a Senior Lecturer from Feb 2012 to June 2016.
