Hi! My name is Cyril Saade, and I am currently working as a Software Engineer within BlackRock's Financial Modelling Group. My technical interests lie in the study of Distributed Systems, Cloud Computing, and Network Security. My day-to-day work involves designing, developing, and deploying scalable infrastructure to BlackRock's Aladdin Clients.

I graduated with an M.S.E. in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania. I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Boston University.

I am a long distance runner with a current Marathon Personal Best at 3:52:12. When I am separated from my computer, you might catch me running around New York City's streets at 6AM training for my next race, on my bike recovering from my tempo runs, or rocking down the beautiful Colorado terrain with my pair of Skis.
