I am Thilina Buddhika, a Ph.D student at Computer Science Department at Colorado State University since Fall, 2013. My primary research interests are distributed systems and large scale data processing in general. Recently I have been focusing on distributed data stream processing applications and complex event processing systems. I work with Dr. Shrideep Pallickara in the Distributed Systems Group.
Before starting my graduate studies, I worked as a software engineer at WSO2 Inc., which is an open source SOA middleware company for more than three years. During that period, I was mainly working on web services and service oriented architectures, enterprise application integration and their security aspects. I am a committer and a project management committee member for Apache Axis2, a popular open source SOAP engine.
