Hi, I’m Alex!

I am a PhD Researcher at The University of Manchester working at the boundary of Human-Computer Interaction and Machine Learning.

Thus far, my research has focused on designing, developing, and evaluating accessibility technologies for visually impaired users. Specifically, I am producing an unsupervised learning approach to cluster web pages by similarity. This significantly reduces how many pages accessibility auditors need to review.

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.

As I approach the end of my PhD, I am seeking research opportunities at the intersection of HCI and AI. You can contact me on LinkedIn, Twitter, or through email: alexander <dot> hambley <at> manchester <dot> ac <dot> uk.
