General focus on genome assembly, specifically _Populus tremula_ and _Picea abies_ with a particular interest in integrating long reads to improve contiguity and resolve heterozygosity issues. As a second primary project, I am investigating gene regulatory network inference and am currently coding up a package to perform parallelised inference and aggregation of whole transcriptome GRNs called Seidr.

I’m a PhD student at the Department of Plant Physiology at Umea University. The goal of my PhD is to help biologist to explore and gain insight from large-scale biological data through new visualization tools and interaction methods. These methods are based on mainstream social science practices such as participatory design, social innovation and design theory. Therefore, I enjoy developing bioinformatics related tools for PopGenIE and ConGenIE websites.

Before Joining to Umea university as a research engineer; I worked for several companies (Virtusa, GMI, Antera, LSM, JoyGroup) in different capacities (Software engineer, Project leader and Programmer).

I obtained my BSc degree in Computer Science at the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka. I also completed a degree in Management at CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), the UK in 2007 and then obtained Human-Computer Interaction MSc degree at Umea University in 2010.

I listed all my previous projects on my personal website (http://irusri.com).
Thanks for spending your valuable time to read my profile.
