Hi, I'm Alex.
I'm a mechanical engineering graduate student nearing the final stages of my Ph.D. It's been a long, hard, frustrating journey so far. In a bid to keep myself on track and motivated to finish, I've decided to document the daily ups and downs.
Don't worry, this won't just be a collection of my whines about funding, exams, theses and conferences. I will also be writing about other important things in my life.
Outside of my chosen profession I'm also very interested in cooking and eating, a wide variety of sports, comedy consumption and creation, movies, music, TV, gadgets and cars. All of these things have a massive effect on my day-to-day life and will be heavily featured here.
I am a supporter of Arsenal Football Club, the Montreal Canadiens, and the Dallas Cowboys. I have an allergy to peanuts, almonds and hazelnuts. I am an advocate for science education. Sometimes I get anxious, sometimes I don't.
Welcome to my life: engineered.
