In 2019 I joined Data61 of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia. Later in the same year, I also joined the School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia as a Conjoint Senior Lecturer. 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 Distributed Systems (Blockchain, Cloud, and P2P), Security, IoT (Internet of Things), and Data Engineering, as well as multidisciplinary applications of those technologies.
