Hi, I'm Kasthuri Jayarajah.

I'm a PhD student in the School of Information Systems, Singapore Management University, working in the areas of socio-physical sensing and pervasive computing. I'm advised by Assoc. Prof. Archan Misra (SMU) and Dr. Shonali Krishnaswamy (A*STAR). I'm being advised by Jenniffer Mankoff and Anind Dey during my exchange at the Carnegie Mellon University, this Fall.

I received my Masters degree in Computing from the National University of Singapore, in 2013, and Bachelor of Engineering degree from the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, in 2010. Prior to joining the PhD programme, I was a Research Engineer at the Living Analytics Research Center at SMU. My current research focuses on understanding human behavior through the fusion of physical and social analytics.
