This is Alex.

I'm a PhD student researching smart battery management systems for Li-Ion battery applications for electric vehicles in beautiful Singapore.

I'm an electrical and computational engineer by trade, with focus on machine learning, IoT and renewable energy solutions.

After dark I like to immerse myself in the latest design trends.

Sometimes I make websites.
