The team behind the GridKa School

Uğur Çayoğlu

Seit Oktober 2013 arbeitet Herr Uğur Çayoğlu (gesprochen: Uur Tschayolu) in der Abteilung SDM. Bis Ende Juli arbeitet er als Key Accounter im Landesprojekt bwFDM-Communities; danach wird er als Doktorand in der Helmholtzportfolio-erweiterung LSDMA im Data Life Cycle Lab Erde und Umwelt tätig sein.
Herr Çayoğlu hat Informationswirtschaft am KIT studiert. Er erhielt seinen Bachelor-Abschluss 2009 und seinen Master-Abschluss 2012. Während des Studiums arbeitete er als HiWi in der Abteilung DMK/CMK.
Sein Büro befindet sich am Campus Nord im Gebäude 449, Raum 304.

Christopher Jung

Christopher Jung holds graduate degrees in Physics and Maths as well as a PhD in Physics. He was a member of the European project "Enabling Grids for e-science in Europe" and the German project "Physics at the Terascale". Christopher also served as the ALICE experiment contact at the GridKa Tier-1 at KIT. Since 2012, he has been the project manager of Helmholtz Association project "Large-Scale Data Management and Analysis".
From 2007 to 2011, Christopher led GridKa School as programming and organizing chair. Since 2012, he has been organizing the international symposium "The Challenge of Big Data in Science".


Preslav Konstantinov

Preslav Konstantinov

Preslav Konstantinov studied Physics at the University of Sofia. From 1991 he worked at the Institute for Nuclear Research and Nuclear Energy in Sofia in the area of crystal structure refinement via neutron diffraction techniques. He was instrumental in designing, deploying and developing the Institute's computer network, essential network services and Internet connection and served as Chief Sysadmin and Computer Systems Analyst. Since 2001 he became involved in the WLCG project and set up and maintained a small Grid site at the Institute in collaboration with CERN IT Department. In 2011 he moved to CERN to work in the CMS Computing Integration Group. Since 2014 he works at KIT as CMS Contact Person for the GridKA Tier 1 Grid Site.


Jörg Meyer

Jörg Meyer studied physics at Bonn University received his PhD on “Measurement of the Top Quark Mass using Dilepton Events and a Neutrino Weighting Algorithm with the DØ Experiment at the Tevatron (Run II)” in 2007. From 2007 to 2012 he worked at Göttingen University as grid computing expert and as member of the ATLAS collaboration at CERN. In 2012 he started a position at KIT in the Helmholtz Portfolio extension LSDMA, where he took the lead of the data life cycle lab “Earth and Environment”. This involves the coordination of common activities of the LSDMA data experts at KIT and DKRZ and researchers from the climate research community.
