Portrait of Alex with blue background

After completing his Bachelor of Science (Physics) at Curtin, Alex continued his education with a Graduate Certificate of Predictive Analytics and first class Honours of Mathematical Physics. During his studies, Alex assisted researchers in Curtin’s Theoretical Physics Group in researching the formation of matter in the early stages of the Universe and radiative therapies for cancer treatment.

Along with aiding researchers on Curtin campus, he worked at Digital Technology and Solutions providing level one IT support to staff and students as a venue and abacus officer. This introduction into IT enabled Alex to work at local market service provider “Network-IT”, assisting with the deployment of servers and network infrastructure to a wide range of clients in the mining and finance industry.

Alex joined the CIC in July 2022 as a software developer for the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative. This project’s goal is to create, maintain, and combine a range of open-source datasets of scholarly articles, as well as providing keen insights into the level of open access in universities and institutions across the world.

His key competencies and research interests include:

  • Programming and Optimisation
  • Data analysis, Visualisation, and Interpretation
  • High Performance Computing
