Asanga Seneviratne

Asanga is a first-year Bachelor of Commerce student at the University of Melbourne majoring in Economics and Finance. Having failed to determine the real world applications of mass-spectroscopy in VCE Chemistry, he has reverted to the wonders of economics and its ability to demystify extortionate burger pricing and lowest price guarantees.

Joining ESSA as a subcommittee member appealed to Asanga primarily due to his interest in raising the standard of student dialogue around current political and economic issues, in particular public policy, which ESSA seeks to both elevate and enrich.

Outside of the world of economics, Asanga can often be found hopelessly attempting to get through his longform reading list, trawling Spotify for another Deep House or Alternative gem and trying to improve his three-point shot with varying levels of success.
