    Alex is a graduating third year concurrently studying Political Science: Data Analytics, History: Law, and minoring in Computational Social Science to prepare for his next endeavor as a PhD candidate. If seen in the wild, then he most likely has his ear buds in listening to his hodgepodge of a spotify library, his transition lenses transitioned because his future is so bright, and his mind contemplating his next task. Whether it's chefing it up in the kitchen, compiling code for statistical analysis, or writing too much for people to care for. Never fear to disrupt his thoughts and remind him that the world exists as he will happily converse with you for as long as you'd like.
