Buket joined ICHEC in November 2012 as a computational scientist. At ICHEC, she was involved in developing software on diverse applications of science and engineering such as molecular dynamics, quantum physics and geophysics. She lead the PRACE WP7 Task 7.2 on "Preparing for PRACE Exascale Systems" and contributed to a couple of PRACE technical projects mainly related to the GPU computing. She was also involved in the ExSeisDat (Extreme-Scale Seismic Data) project for the implementation of the GPU Direct RDMA.

She is currently involved in the EuroCC Academic Flagship Project and takes part in formal teaching activities in particular within graduate programmes as well as other training courses.

Prior to joining ICHEC, Buket has worked on the analysis of the stability and spectral properties of nonnegative matrices with applications in multi-criteria decision making problems during her Ph.D.. She has worked on solving large scale sparse linear systems of equations with preconditioners during her M.Sc.
