Mr Bhagya Wickramasinghe (School of Science)
Bhagya graduated from University of Colombo's School of Computing, Sri Lanka after completing the degree in Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) with Honours in 2011. He had been working as a software engineer since then, until joining Lifetime Affordable Housing project and RMIT School of Science as a PhD Candidate under the supervision of Professor Lin Padgham and Dr Dhirendra Singh in March 2014. Bhagya's PhD research will focus on integrating agent based simulations, which model different aspects of a system, to form a more comprehensive simulation. Particulars of his research mainly include dealing with different representations of an agent that reside in several integrated simulations.
