Oğuzhan Çölkesen

a professional picture of myself


I'm a first-year PhD student at Brown CS, advised by Nikos Vasilakis. I'm currently working in the broad area of computer systems, with a special emphasis on parallel and distributed systems. I work closely with PaSh, which is a system for automatically parallelizing shell scripts. I have prior experience working with concurrent data structures and integer programming.

I graduated from Davidson College in May 2023 with a B.S. in Computer Science with High Honors. I also majored in Mathematics. During my time at Davidson, I also served as the Vice-President of the Student Government Association for two consecutive terms, where we established a campus-wide free textbook rental program.
