My research focuses on the parallelization and optimizations of unstructured meshes on emerging multicore architectures. I particularly deal with data locality issues for sparse data structures on the chip and work on reservoir simulations as a motivating group of applications.

Bachelor: Koç University, Turkey
I am working on design and implementation of tiling based multi-process multi-GPU execution using TiDA. TiDA is a tiling data abstraction which enhances data locality and manages parallelism on NUMA nodes. I'm currently working on extending current API to execute applications on heterogenous systems with GPUs.

Bachelor: Ankara I.D Bilkent University, Turkey
I am currently working on parallelisation and optimization of machine learning algorithms on GPU. I particularly focus on the KNET Deep Learning Framework developed at Koc University. My goal is to reduce the communication overhead and memory accesses of machine learning core kernels.

Bachelor: Nazarbayev University, Astana, Kazakhstan
I am currently working on novel programming models and techniques for new architectures that will appear in the post-Moore's Law era. My goal is to reduce the programing effort and make a smooth transition from the current multicore systems.
