Pamodi is a journalist from Colombo, exploring stories which affect people living in Sri Lanka. Her work aims to focus on labour rights, human rights, and environmental justice.
This year, she has investigated exploitative forms of tourism and thrill sports affecting the whale population in Sri Lanka's southern seas. Last year, she highlighted a proposed water irrigation project's potential harm to the Sinharaja Rainforest - a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Sri Lanka. She also reported on the burning of the MV X-Press Pearl off of the Western Coast of Sri Lanka - regarded as one of the largest marine environmental disasters to occur.
When not writing, she spends her time reading, travelling around the island, or engaging in her guilty pleasure of scrolling through Tik Tok.
