This is me.

Hi. My name is Clayton Cafiero and this is my website.

I am a graduate student and research assistant in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Vermont, studying computer science, complex systems, and mathematics. I am currently pursuing a degree in Computer Science, and the Certificate of Graduate Study in Complex Systems (at the Vermont Complex Systems Center). My interests include algorithms, graph theory, complex networks, combinatorial theory, and theory of computation -- which is too much for one person!

I also work part-time as a senior developer and project manager for a software company with clients in equity research. This work includes developing a platform for publishing, compliance tracking, and distribution of equity research; building tools for data mining and analytics; and other little goodies. For these projects, I work with Python and JavaScript, and occasionally C++ and Go.

While at UVM, I have served as teaching assistant for CS 243 / MATH 243 Theory of Computation and CS 222 Computer Architecture, both taught by Professor Alan Ling. I will be a graduate teaching assistant in fall of 2019 for CS 125 Computability and Complexity.

With regard to the practice of software development, you will find me a vocal proponent of test-driven development, reading documentation, and being very nosy about library source code.

When I have a little spare time, I enjoy constructing gadgets with Raspberry Pi and Arduino, and composing a little music!

Feel free to drop by my office (E332 Innovation Hall) or contact me via email at clayton (dot) cafiero (at) (you know the rest).
