My name is Alex, I graduated in Computer Engineering from Concordia University.
I'm currently working in the control plane team at Kaloom, where we aim to build a flexible yet performant software-based data center fabric product. In my free time, I like to write tech posts, summarize research papers, and take notes of interesting reads and talks.

I've previously participated in projects in aerospace and robotics, working on communication, electrical and embedded systems.
