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’ve been waiting a long time for this! My @inputclub white fox keyboard is finally here! So excited to start typing on my hako trues 😍 . . . #mechanicalkeyboard #mechkeyboard #whitefox #tech



I went to see @alvvaysband at the starlight room last week. The serendipitous highlight for me was getting to see @thisisfrankierose. They were in a few playlists that I used to listen to in highschool, but lost their music when my harddrive died. Im getting crazy nostalgia after finding them all over again.


Meanwhile in the BLINC lab: a bag of San Franciscan street lizards 🦎


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
