I am Dalkandura Arachchige Kalpa Shashika Silva Gunaratna and a fifth year PhD student at Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State University. My research interest lies mainly in summarization, complex relationship identification and organization in Linked Open Data and data integration problems. I am also interested in data analytics, semantic matching problems and developing tools exploring knowledge in large datasets. I had also worked on Cloud Computing in the recent past.

I graduated(with First Class Honors) from UCSC of University of Colombo, Sri Lanka with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree (BSCS). After my undergraduate studies, I worked in the industry as a software engineer for one and half years.

I joined Kno.e.sis Center in 2010 summer and have been working with my advisor Prof. Amit P. Sheth. I also collaborate with Prof. T. K. Prasad who is my co-adviser.
