Danaka is also a sessional lecturer at the Dhillon School of Business, where she teaches supply chain and project management.

Danaka is a cofounder and the COO of VitaNova Tech, a fertility company. She wrote the algorithms to better match surrogates and egg donors with intended parents. 

Additionally, Danaka is completing her Ph.D. in cardiology at the Cumming School of Medicine, where she is using machine learning to help predict sudden cardiac death (SCD) by rewriting the algorithms used to find certain markers. Danaka sits on the Training and Education committee for the Cardiac Arrhythmia Network of Canada, where she educates Ph.D.s, trainees, doctors, and health care workers in implementing and using technology in cardiac care.

She also sits on the board of motionball, a national fundraising committee dedicated to raising money for the Special Olympics.
