Hi, I’m Alex!

I am a PhD Researcher at The University of Manchester working at the boundary of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and applied machine learning. As I finish my PhD, I am seeking Software Engineering or Data Scientist opportunities.

I am an Associate Lecturer at the Open University on the Algorithms, Data Structures and Computability course. I am also a Graduate Instructor for User Experience at the University of Manchester.

Part of the Interaction Analysis and Modelling laboratory, my research focuses on accessibility technologies for visually impaired users. I am producing an unsupervised machine learning approach that clusters web pages by similarity, significantly improving web accessibility evaluation time.

Before my PhD at The University of Manchester, I achieved a First Class BSc (Hons) in Computer Science from the University of Nottingham. In addition, I have strong software engineering skills acquired through my degree and two software engineering internships: one focused on accessibility, the other on software engineering in research.
