Emmanouil (Manos) Farsarakis
I joined EPCC in 2014, following a BSc in Physics from the university of Crete, an MSc in High Performance Computing from EPCC and several years working in science and TEFL education.
Since joining the CSE team at EPCC, I have enjoyed working on numerous projects. I am part of the IPCC team which works on modernising HPC codes for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. I am also part of the NEXTGenIO project, doing innovative research in HPC I/O for Exascale. Last but not least, I am greatly involved in HPC training at EPCC. I lead Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry workshops for ARCHER training, I participate in MSc in HPC and HPC with Data Science training and I am also involved in the development of a Supercomputing MOOC on Futurelearn through PRACE.
In my free time, and when I’m not travelling for work or pleasure, I enjoy going to the gym or playing the guitar and piano. I also used to participate in bands from time to time as a singer.
