Hello! I'm Alex (they/them), a Senior Developer at Cognizant, currently contracted to NHS England to develop and maintain the Secondary Uses Service. Previously I was at the Central Digital and Data Office, part of the Cabinet Office, working on DNS security assurance for the public sector.

Before that I worked in turn for mySociety, ONI and Cottage Labs, and further back still spent about 8½ years as a developer and dilettante enterprise architect at the University of Oxford's IT Services (and the Computing Services before that). I regularly help out at Democracy Club's Where Can I Vote? in the run up to local and national elections in the UK.

I hold an MCompSci in Computer Science from Keble College at the University of Oxford.

My spouse and I live in Oxfordshire with our 9 year-old and our eccentric-but-adorable greyhound.
