DIC, MSc, PhD
Dr Cunningham trained initially as an Earth scientist. In the course of his career, Alex has worked as a research scientist at the British Antarctic Survey (recognised in 2013 as NERC’s leading centre in terms of research excellence), and as a senior software engineer and project scientist in the oil and gas industry. As a result of his research activities, Alex has published papers on Earth science and clinical software development, and acted as a PhD examiner and journal reviewer. Since 2005, Dr Cunningham has worked in CCGE as a computer programmer on the BOADICEA project. He 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.
