Maheshi Wadasinghe

Maheshi is driven by a passion to help others succeed. A self-confessed life-long learner, Maheshi is well qualified with a Master’s degree in Marine Conservation and also Bioscience Enterprise.

Maheshi sees herself as ‘a bridger’ – intent on helping others get to where they want to go and sharing in the joy of being a part of the journey.

Over the years and between marriage and starting a family, she’s studied and worked in both New Zealand and Australia. With a particular love for nature conservation, Maheshi admits she continues to seek ways to do good in the world and aspires to be involved in social enterprise. Maheshi fits the Tech Futures Lab mould well, with a rather squiggly line career path that’s likely to continue as she’s attracted to learning from and working with diverse groups across industry fields. She has a strong background in research plus she knows her way around co-design practices, Intellectual property and research commercialisation, all of which will come in handy as Programme lead for Graduate studies at the Lab.
