Dr. Vichy (Vichithra) Liyanage-Zachariah
A freelance academic writer and a child health researcher….
I am a dedicated child health researcher originally coming from Sri Lanka and now living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I obtained my B.Sc. in Molecular Biology & Biotechnology from the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. Before starting my Ph.D., I worked as an Assistant Lecturer at the same university. I completed my Ph.D. in Medical Epigenetics and Regenerative Medicine in 2017/December from University of Manitoba, Canada, focusing on the epigenetic mechanisms of neurological disorders, primarily Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Rett Syndrome.
I am currently working part-time as a Knowledge Synthesis Research Technician at the Helen Glass Research Centre at the University of Manitoba and focuses my research on Patient and Family Engagement in Healthcare and Health Research. This knowledge has inspired me to explore experiences, perspectives and voices of patients and their families regarding their life quality, needs, problems and perspectives of healthcare professionals and policy makers in implementing evidence-based strategies to meet their needs and best support them. In achieving this goal, I am currently working as a Research Assistant at the CanFASD, I am dedicated and determined to contribute to the FASD research and knowledge translation into strategies, practices, and policies and contribute to making the healthcare and health research in Canada a patient- and family-oriented, providing the best care while protecting their rights.
Additionally, I am a self-stating business woman with my own freelance Medical and Science writing services (VR Medical and Science Writers) and provide services to mainly health researchers worldwide.
At free time, I’d like to play with my two kitties Fox and Meows, learn scientific illustrations, read psychology-related books and watch crime-related TV shows.
