Alex Brandt

I am currently a graduate student in Computer Science at the University of Western Ontario. My research is supervised by Professor Marc Moreno Maza and conducted within the Ontario Research Center for Computer Algebra (ORCCA) where I am a research assistant. I received a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science (Software Engineering) from Memorial University of Newfoundland.


My current research interests focus on high performance scientific computing. This includes:

  • Parallel Computing Architectures and Paradigms
  • Software Engineering for Scientific Computing
  • Symbolic and Numeric Computation
  • Algorithm Design and Analysis


I am currently working on the Basic Polynomial Algebra Subprograms (BPAS) library.
This library provides fast, optimized polynomial arithmetic and basic operations.
