Chris Alexander

About

I am an engineer living and working in Surrey. I have previously worked on web and desktop software applications, and I currently build and maintain simulation technology and infrastructure for the local Formula 1 team. I have a Masters degree in Applied Robotics from the University of Reading.

My approach to engineering is a sharp focus on the customer and their problem, combined with a pragmatic, less-is-more perspective. I fight complexity and inefficiency with logical componentisation, self-documentation and convention.

My interests outside work include music and photography, as well as tinkering with robots here and there.
