I am Christopher Mitchell, CEO and co-founder of Geopipe, and an adjunct professor of Computer Science at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. I previously was a postdoctoral research fellow and graduate student in the Networking and Wide-Area Systems group at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Science at NYU. I defended my PhD thesis in Computer Science, focusing on Distributed Systems, in August 2015: "Building Fast, CPU-Efficient Distributed Systems on Ultra-Low Latency, RDMA-Capable Networks". I earned my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering in May 2010 and my BE in EE in May 2009 from the Cooper Union in New York City. My current research focus is on high-performance distributed storage for tomorrow's datacenter, and applications of distributed systems to automated GIS tools. Recent highlights of my academic work include the Cell and Pilaf projects exploring RDMA-based distributed systems; I previously worked on Oolong.
My Master of Electrical Engineering thesis focused on the refinement and applications of realtime computer vision algorithms to wearable computing for augmented reality. I have previously explored the parallelization of encryption and stochastic algorithms on FPGAs and GPGPU hardware. My personal research centers on the implementation of high-functioning hardware and software applications for low-resource portable devices. I am the administrator emeritus of Cooper Union's EE μLab and ICELab, a graduate fellow emeritus of the S*ProCom² lab at the Cooper Union, and was a Continuing Education instructor for Cooper Union's Immigrant Retraining Program. I maintain my 14,000-member technology-focused website and forum, Cemetech, where I publish most of my personal projects and teach programming. I recently published a book teaching programming skills and a second book teaching graphing calculator skills for math.
