About Alex

With a BS with a major in Physics and minor in Computer Science, I have a solid foundation of physics and the intensive mathematics that go hand in hand with these subjects. This has given me a strong understanding in the fundamental concepts of science and of how things work.

In addition, I love learning, teaching, problem-solving, and technology. While attending Saint Louis University, I was a physics and programming tutor for two years and a physics lab instructor for three years. I was often told by peers that I have a gift for describing difficult concepts in ways that make them easier to visualize. I was also a go-to peer for troubleshooting code and interpreting physics problems into mathematical language. As far as technology goes, I have been running both Fedora (Linux) and OS X on my personal computer for more than 6 years and am known to independently learn new programming languages in my spare time.

I was elected to both the positions of President and Project Manager for Saint Louis University's Society of Physics Students chapter. I have a BS in physics and tutored the subject for two years while in college.

Physics is no longer boring and impossible to understand. As of right now, it's your new best friend!
