About Me

I am Kashumi Madampe, a final year Software Engineering Ph.D. candidate (about to complete) at Monash University, Australia. My research interests lie in requirements engineering, affective computing, and human and social aspects of Software Engineering. I practice Grounded Theory, software repository mining, and natural language processing mostly in my research work.

Education:

I completed the provisional year of my Ph.D. at The University of Auckland, New Zealand in 2019 and transferred to Monash in 2020. I obtained a First Class BSc. (Special – Equivalent to Hons) in Computing and Information Systems Degree from Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka in 2016.

Work Experience:

Academia: At Monash University, I supervise R&D projects of final year Software Engineering undergraduate students. In 2020, I supervised a team of 4 students, and they scored the highest in their course (included 100+ students from both Australian and Malaysian campuses). In 2021 also I supervised another team of 4 students who also scored high marks in the course.

At The University of Auckland, I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and as a Research Assistant at the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Software Engineering, Faculty of Engineering.

Industry: From 2016 to 2019, I worked as an Associate Consultant at myDigitalOffice Ltd. It’s safe to say that I played a huge role in building the business. I captured valuable businesses, managed multiple integrated and standalone products, engineering, and operations teams, worked closely with clients, and did product designing and high-fidelity prototyping. Prior to that, I interned as a System Analyst at SriLankan Airlines Ltd., and as a Business Analyst at Nibaya Ltd.
