About Me

Hi. I'm Alex Cappiello, a senior at Carnegie Mellon University. I am studying computer science and chemistry.

Broadly, my programming 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.

I also have spent a large amount of time as a teaching assistant for Principles of Imperative Computation (15-122).
