Alex is in his second year of the NGCM iPhD programme, studying Multiscale Relativistic Simulations, under Dr Ian Hawke.

Before moving to Southampton to study in the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Next Generation Computer Modelling (NGCM), Alex completed an MPhys in Theoretical Physics at University Of Manchester - developing a keen interest in programming and computational methods.

Alex is currently working on solving stiff relaxation systems and multifluid models of plasmas to determine their plausibility in describing neutron star systems. He is the sole contributor of METHOD, a relativistic multi-fluid electromagnetohydrodynamics solver, which is being built with the intention of being an open sourced multi-physics MHD code.
