About me

Hey, my name is Ömer. I am a computer engineering graduate student at Boğaziçi University. My background is from a different field, industrial engineering. During my undergraduate years, I became interested in computer science. Therefore, I decided to pursue a master’s degree in computer engineering.


For the last year, I have been learning a lot about the field. I have also been looking for opportunities to expand my knowledge, see new places and meet new people. One day, I got an email from my professor about Prace Summer of HPC 2020 Programme. When I saw the flyer of the programme, it looked like the perfect event for me. It had everything I was looking for.

Training week

I would prefer to be in Vienna. But this is still a nice group photo

I was glad when I heard SoHPC was going to be online instead of being cancelled. I consider myself lucky because field of computing is more immune to viruses than any other field. People I met in the training week were really nice and enthusiastic. Training week went smoothly and I had a great time. I had crash courses on MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, Linux command line and even yoga. I would like to thank everyone who contributed for the training week. I am very excited about Summer of HPC 2020. I hope everyone will have a great summer.

I am assigned to project 2022 – Novel HPC Parallel Programming Models for Computing (both in CPU and GPU). I will be writing about the project in a further post. For the end of this post, I wish I was posting photos from Vienna and Luxembourg. But there is not really much to do. Instead, I will be posting beautiful views from İzmir.
