I'm a PhD student at the department of Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara. Currently I'm conducting distributed systems research under the supervision of prof. Chandra Krintz. Before my graduate studies I was at the industry for 3 years. I was a Senior Technical Lead at WSO2 Inc. - The lean enterprise middleware provider for SOA. I completed my B.Sc. Engineering degree in 2009, at University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. I'm an active contributor to a number of open source projects and also an Apache committer for Apache Synapse and Apache Xerces. SOA, Web Services, J2EE, PHP, .NET and cloud computing are among my favorite technologies.
