About Me

Hi. I'm Alex Cappiello. In May 2014, I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.A. in Chemistry. I'm out in the real world now, so I'm not sure what I'll be using this site for now.

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