Dr Asanka Gunasekara
I am a management academic with a passion for researching how organisations can achieve excellence through emotional intelligence, well-being, and mindfulness practices. My research is focused on helping organisations to develop ethical, inclusive and supportive workplaces that allow employees to thrive. I also research in the inclusion of skilled migrants in the workplace, as I believe diversity is a key driver of innovation and success. In my recent research, I have also explored the implications of technology on higher education. As technology continues to reshape our world, it is important for higher education institutions to adapt and evolve. I have conducted research on the impact of technology on teaching and learning, as well as the potential benefits and drawbacks of digital education.
I publsih in International Journal of Intercultural Relations, Employee Relations, Leadership and in various education journals. Within Swinburne Business school, I am the unit chair for Contemporary Management Priciples Unit . Prior to joining academia, I worked in the finance industry.
