I’m a Ph.D. candidate with the Department of Computer Science, National University of Singapore (2016 to present). I had my bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, in 2013. I worked as a Trainee Software Engineer at Sampath Bank Systems Development (in 2012) and as a Software Engineer at Aeturnum Lanka (Pvt) Ltd (from 2013 to 2015). In addition to my interest in security research, I am also interested in Python, Java, and Android developments.
My research interests:
- Internet of Things (IoT) security and privacy (smart homes)
- Program analysis
- Protocol verification
