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 am unreasonably excited about this Grace Hopper sticker my lab-mate gave to me.


My research lab held an archery tag house-cup. We sorted ourselves into houses and competed for bragging rights and the shiniest of trophies. Slytherin naturally won. 🐍 . . . #harrypotter #slytherin #magic #science #gradschool


In line to see Michelle Obama’s talk. Hoping for a good conversation on global education. #yeg #cndpoli #education

I finally had the chance to make my way out to Ritchie market. I had a flight of beer 🍻 the best was a beer with notes of tea; it tasted slightly like an oolong. I had a platter of ham, persimmon, and mustard to go with it ☺️ . . . #beer #craftbeer #brewery #foodie


More progress on my fisherman sweater! I don’t like seaming, so I followed @bygumbygolly’s instructions for modifying patters for set in sleeves. Just two sleeves to go!
