Hi there! My name is Omer. I’m a software engineer.

I’ve had a rather unorthodox career path: I got my first software development job straight out of high school, and worked as a software engineer from the mid-1990s until the mid-2000s. I then spent about 15 years as an academic linguist, all the while nurturing my techie skillset on the side. In 2022, I decided to resign my tenured faculty position as a professor of linguistics and return to software engineering.

These days, I you can find me at Sylabs Inc., where I work on developing & maintaining high‑performance virtualization software.Mastodon
