Alex graduated from The University Of Sheffield with an MMath in Mathematics in 2019, focusing his fourth year dissertation on monomial ideals (abstract algebra). With a broad mathematical background and a passion for problem solving, Alex was excited to see how his skills could be useful in the challenges facing the automotive industry. One of his main motivations for joining the AAPS CDT was to experience the unique trans-disciplinary nature of the programme and gain an appreciation for work in other fields. Outside of his studies Alex has volunteered with the ReachSci initiative and created and delivered mathematics masterclasses with the Royal Institute, aiming to increase accessibility to academia. He also enjoys cooking, keeping fit and creating music under the name Eskafell.
I am a volunteer with the ReachSci initiative, which aims to improve accessibility in academia. I am currently part of a team developing STEM research projects for high school students in Algeria. The projects are designed to meet the requirements for CREST Gold Award and to boost the students' university applications.
