I earned the B.Sc. (1st Class Honors) in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in 2004. I obtained M.S. and Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Colorado State University, Fort Collins, USA in 2008 and 2012, respectively. I also have diplomas and certifications in psychology, college teaching, and security products from WatchGuard. I joined the Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in 2005, where I was later promoted to senior lecturer grade I and II in 2012 and 2017, respectively. In 2019 I joined Data 61 of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia. I have also taught part-time at Naval Artificer Training Institute, Sri Lanka and Science Land IT, Northshore College of Business, and Rajarata University of Sri Lanka. My research interests include IoT (Internet of Things), Data Engineering, Distributed Systems (Cloud, P2P, and HPC), and network security, as well as multidisciplinary applications of those technologies. I am a Senior Member of IEEE and Associate Member of IESL. I was an IEEE student member (2007-2012), ACM Member (2014-2016), and president of the student leadership council of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (2010-2012). I love to travel, read, music, volunteer, and play cricket.
