Hi. I'm Alex Cappiello, a senior at Carnegie Mellon University. I am studying computer science and chemistry. I am currently a teaching assistant for 15-122 (Principles of Imperative Computation) and doing research in distributed consensus algorithms. At the moment, everything on this site is more or less up-to-date.
Broadly, my research interests are in high-performance computing. Essentially, I like to understand why code performs the way it does and then find how I can do better. In the past, I've done a large amount of work in scientific computing. More recently, this has led me to distributed systems.
