My name is Nuri Yeralan. I'm a CISE PhD student studying high performance computing and graph theory at the University of Florida. My PhD advisor is Dr. Timothy Alden Davis. I worked at Sage Software as a Software Architect for two years. Prior to Sage, I worked at MindSolve Technologies as a Web Developer for five years.

I love anything outdoors including diving, camping, climbing, rafting, riverboarding, sailing, fishing, bmx, mtb, downhill, sky, paragliding, and big air. I participated in the 2008 Ekstremsportveko in Voss, Norway.
