Profile Image

I’m Alexander Bricken, an Old Etonian and student in the class of 2022 at Minerva: an unconventional university that is changing the future of higher education. My journey has brought me from the traditional to the polar opposite - I love calculated risk!

I major in Computer Science with a custom concentration in Computational Operations Research. I designed this concentration to be a blend of mathematics, optimisation methods, statistics, machine learning, and data science. I also have taken some electives in physics, statistical mechanics, philosophy, and psychology. I love product management and data-driven decision-making. As well as this, I like to think of myself as a social entrepreneur, investor, and software engineer. I am always looking for unique opportunities. Right now, I am deep diving into the Web 3.0 space.

My next steps are joining the HackNY fellowship as a full-stack developer at PleasrDAO. I will be working on a small team with a mission of experimenting with novel concepts in digital and community art ownership.

Learning excites me. I want to know about the world; whether it be biology, history, politics, philosophy or economics. I try to read as much as I can, and follow a bunch of free-thinkers and academics on my Twitter.

By hobby, I am a fitness enthusiast, photographer, drone-flyer, graphic designer, D&D player, and global traveller. I am teaching myself the guitar and wish I was a DJ. My curiosity also sometimes leads me down rabbit holes. I’ve created generative art with Processing, experiment with Blender, like game design, and even have tried to produce some rap songs with friends.

Where I've lived:

And I’ve been a tourist in many other places around the world. Some of my favourite places include Thailand, Iceland, The Maldives, Peru, Italy, and South Africa.
