I am Dalkandura Arachchige Kalpa Shashika Silva Gunaratna and a PhD candidate at Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State University. My research interest lies mainly in fact summarization, data integration and alignment, semantic/cognitive computing, NLP, knowledge graphs, and Semantic Web technologies. I am also interested in data analytics and exploration of ML, IR, and AI techniques for intelligent data processing. I have also worked on Cloud and Distributed Computing in the recent past. I have done exciting internships at IBM Almaden (USA), NLM-NIH (USA), and Insight Center (Ireland) applying my research expertise.
I graduated (with First Class Honors) from UCSC of University of Colombo, Sri Lanka with the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree (BSCS). After my undergraduate studies, I worked in the industry as a software engineer in a reputed international company for one year and nine months.
