Dr Krishanthi Vithana is a Lecturer in Accounting in the School of Business at the University of Southampton.

Krish completed her Doctoral studies in Durham University Business School in 2014. She also holds MBA in Finance from the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka and BSc in Agribusiness Management in the Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka with the medal for the best performance in the Department of Agribusiness Management. Successful completion of the Foundation and the Intermediate stages of the Examinations conducted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka did open the path for her to change the discipline from Science to Accounting and Finance. She believes this to be one of the best decisions.

Prior to joining the Southampton Business School she worked as a Teaching Assistant in Durham University Business School, and a Lecturer in the Department of Agribusiness Management in Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka. She managed to maintain a good collaboration with the industry as well by working in the capacity of a consultant, researcher and a professional development trainer offering services to several organisations in Sri Lanka including, Sri Lanka Business Development Centre, Outward Bound Trust of Sri Lanka and ILO project on Youth Employment in Sri Lanka. She was also an active member of the project groups in the department of Agribusiness Management in successfully completing the projects: Improving the Relevance and the Quality of Undergraduate Education, a world bank funded project; and A baseline survey on youth unemployment in Sabaragamuwa Province, Sri Lanka, a project funded by International Labor Organisation.
