I'm Alex, a full-stack software engineer from Melbourne, Australia. I currently work under the Applied Artificial Intelligence Institute (A2I2) as a research software engineer.
With industry experience in the education, research and commercial sectors, I have worked on writing and deploying iOS and large-scale web applications, low-level SDKs with C/C++, and machine learning data processing with Python. At A2I2, I've been actively involved in R&D projects exploring an AI-based alphanumeric identification system and building a surrounding end-to-end data engineering pipeline. Currently, I am pursuing a research doctorate in operationalising AI using software engineering practices for AI in business use.
I'm passionate about teaching programming as practically as possible, and have been doing so since 2014. I also love open source software and contribute to several open source projects in computer science education and higher education learning. I also work as a resident tutor of software engineering at International House, a college of the University of Melbourne.
When I'm not busy coding, you can find me hiking outdoors, reading up the latest tech, or out saving 80s and 90s Macs from certain destruction!
