My research interests lie in data analysis and visualization. Specifically, I am interested in exploring and developing generalized data analysis and visualization solutions, that can be applied across a wide variety of application domains.
As a Research Associate at Division of Epidemiology, University of Utah, my current focus is to apply advanced analytics and informatics methods in creative, cross-disciplinary activities in an effort to improve clinical care.
In 2017, I graduated with a PhD in Computing (Graphics Track) from the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at University of Utah. Prior to that, I completed my undergraduate degree in computer science from the School of Computing of the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka, in 2009.
As a part of my PhD research, together with my advisor, Dr. Valerio Pascucci and Dr. Peer-Timo Bremer, I worked on developing TALASS, an interactive framework which allows exploration of large-scale, time-varying datasets. Apart from that, my research also include a scalable data-parallel halo-finder operator in PISTON and an in-situ visualization and analysis of PSI simulations. These were results of an collaboration with Dr. Chris Sewell, Li-Ta Lo & Dr. Jim Ahrens in the Data Science at Scale team at Los Alamos National Laboratory. With Dr. Paul Rosen, I developed Ray Graphs, a flexible framework for space and time exploring panoramas.
