Senior Software Developer/Coordinator
DIC, MSc, PhD
Alex trained initially as an Earth scientist and studied geophysics (BSc, Cardiff), exploration geophysics (DIC, MSc, Imperial) and marine geophysics (PhD, London). He has worked as a research scientist at the British Antarctic Survey, and as a senior software engineer and project scientist in the oil and gas industry.
In recent years, Alex has focussed on regulatory affairs. In 2019, he led a project to achieve regulatory compliance (CE marking) for the CanRisk Tool. The CanRisk Tool was the first program of its kind to carry the CE marking.
Alex writes code and solves practical problems of software reliability, Web security and data protection in a healthcare setting. His work helps to ensure that our software is safe and easy to use.
