* Vice President-elect Kamala Harris picks Sri Lankan-American Rohini Kosoglu to be her domestic policy adviser
Fri, Dec 4, 2020, 12:40 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 03, Colombo: United States Vice President-elect Kamala Harris Thursday named her longtime adviser, Sri Lankan-American Rohini Kosoglu as her domestic policy adviser.

"Serving as my domestic policy adviser will be Rohini Kosoglu, who is not only an expert on some of the most important issues facing the American people, but also one of my closest and most trusted aides from the Senate and presidential campaign," Harris said in a statement.

Sri Lankan-American Kosoglu, whose parents, Dr. Wijeyadevendram Ravindran and Shobhana Ravindran hail from Jaffna, Sri Lanka, played a crucial part in VP-elect’s national political career, serving as a senior adviser to Ms Harris since 2017.

Kosoglu has been working as a senior adviser to Ms. Harris during the transition and in the Biden-Harris campaign. She previously served as Ms. Harris’s chief of staff in her Senate office.

As a senior adviser in the election campaign, Kosoglu managed and oversaw debate preparation, policy, communications, and operations for a team with over three-hundred staff with a $40 million budget, according to her biography on the Harvard University Kennedy School, where she is a resident fellow at the Institute of Politics.

She was the first South Asian American woman to serve as Chief of Staff in the U.S. Senate. Before joining Harris' campaign, Kosoglu held senior leadership positions with Sens. Michael Bennet of Colorado and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan.

Originally from New Jersey, Kosoglu is a graduate of the University of Michigan and George Washington University and is a mother to three young children.
