I'm Alex Kearney, a PhD student studying Computer Science at the University of Alberta. I focus on Artificial Intelligence and prosthetics.

When I'm not playing with robots, I hang out with the indieweb community, drink tea, and scubadive.

I talk a lot about dev , yeg , indieweb , travel , grad-school , smithsonian , folk , music , ux , and web

I had a little bit of time to kill before the neuroscience symposium, so I went and found chocolate 🍫 #yvc #phdlife #gradschool #travel

In San Fran for #gradcohort2018 . Currently eating my weight in nigiri 🍣 and enjoying the excellent conversation. It’s not often I get to hang out with so many women in tech.
