Isura Manchanayake (He/Him)

I am a Ph.D. student supervised by Prof. Shanika Karunasekera and Prof. Christopher Leckie at the University of Melbourne starting from October 2021. My research interests are influence in social networks and social media bots. I am currently working from Sri Lanka due to pandemic travel restrictions.

Previously, I worked as a consulting software engineer, a research assistant at the National University of Singapore and a junior consultant at the University of Moratuwa. I completed my B.Sc. Eng. (Hons.) with a first class from the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in December 2018. There, I studied Computer Science and Engineering for four years. I was an intern at Arimac Lanka as a game developer in the meantime.

In my freetime, I take photos, hike to feel nature, play COD4, do fun software things, or just watch youtube videos.

In this website, you can read my blogs, watch a few photo albums, and see a few generative art using processing. Do not hesitate to contact me if you require my expertise or just to say something nice :). Oh by the way, this website is built on Django and tailwindcss.
