Hi! My name is Ahmet. I’m a computer programmer, writing software stuff and doing all kinds of technical things for “cloud” now in Oracle, and previously in Amazon Web Services. Plus, I’m interested in doing scientific research on parallel computing, GIS, and finding new software methodologies.

Born in Ankara, Türkiye; and now living with wonderful family in Seattle. I completed my Ph.D. in computer science in Utah State University, and actively worked with multiple professors and research groups for developing cyberinfrastructure solutions and parallel hydrology algorithms. My research was funded by numerous institutions including Utah Water Research Laboratory, and National Science Foundation.

I conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) on developing high-performance parallel programs for GIS and hydrology algorithms. Authored more than 10 papers in book chapters, scientific journals and conference proceedings. Check them out at my Google scholar page.

On this blog I intend to share my thoughts on technical topics and other things. Please feel free to reach me out by email at ahmet at artulab period com.
