Alex studied Physics at Lancaster University (MPhys, 2016) before moving to Imperial College London to study for his PhD.
During his final year at Lancaster University, Alex investigated the relationship between Saturn's aurora and magnetic field using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the Cassini spacecraft.
Alex's PhD project was focussed on studying the variability of Mars' atmosphere, utilising data from NASA's MAVEN mission. During the latter stages of his PhD, he assisted colleagues in deriving a completely new dataset from the European Space Agency's (ESA) Trace Gas Orbiter spacecraft engineering data, originally not meant for science.
Alex joined E+F as a Technical Assistant in September 2020.
