Alex earned a MSc in Computer Science at the Barcelona School of Informatics in 2012. He started working in a mobile analytics startup in Barcelona. After that, Alex and some colleagues won an entrepreneurship grant to build a web application for helping people better organize their trips. He is interested in many fields, such as algorithms and data structures, cryptography, machine learning, graphics and video games. He says that he knows a bit of everything, but not much of anything in particular, so he is always looking to expand his knowledge a bit further. In his free time, Alex enjoys watching TV series and films and trying all kinds of sports (most of them quite badly, though). He is also a decent chess player and enjoys playing and improving at it.
