Junius Gunaratne

Software Developer, Designer, Researcher

I'm currently a Senior UX Engineer at Google's New York office focusing on iOS and web applications. I've worked on Google Drive, Material Design and several related applications. I'm also a researcher at New York University studying how behavioral economics and persuasive design applied to human-computer interaction can influence people's decision making when using computer software.

I specialize in the development of web and mobile software with hybrid skills in the areas of front-end and mobile development as well as user experience and human-computer interaction. I have a range of experience working on both consumer and enterprise applications in a variety of domains from cloud storage to finance.

A few projects I've contributed to recently in my career include: the Google Drive iOS app for personal cloud storage and Morgan Stanley's Matrix financial app suite. I've also published papers at academic conferences.
