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


Went wandering through James Bay on the way back from Beacon Hill Park. We took a detour down a side-street and found one of the city trees had been converted into a tea-tree. ☕️ 🌳


Photograph of the the moment I consider giving it all up to become a tea-farmer. Maren recommended coming to @obubuteafarms for a tour of their estate. The tea tasting we had was so memorable because we also got to see the whole process: from tending to the bushes, to harvesting and processing! I even learned a few new brewing techniques 🍵

Today in grad-school: robot tea parties.


Anna and I went to pekoe tea the other day. For the first time I was able to sit down and enjoy tea there. We both had a couple of green oolong teas which were served gong-fu style.


Deliciously sarcastic fortune: "your graceful qualities make difficult things seem easy". Yes, I did drop it in my tea.
