About


I’m Alex, better known by close friends and in academic circles as “Al”. Never Alexander. I’m a maths graduate who spent most of his undergraduate degree at the University of Liverpool dabbling in programming.

Right now I’m studying for a PhD in Electrical Engineering (also at the University of Liverpool). My work revolves around developing Bayesian techniques for protein quantification in mass spectrometry proteomics. Mostly this involves me writing models in Stan via Julia and trying to convince colleagues in biosciences that t-tests are rubbish.

When I’m not doing that, I tend to either be playing instruments (badly), or video games (also badly), or fiddling about with computers.
