I'm a data scientist with knowledge of several scientific fields. I build computational tools, focusing on physical oceanography and renewable energy. I have a PhD in geophysics, I like to write, and I love working with others. For details of my scientific work, see my profiles on ResearchGate (www.researchgate.net/profile/Alex-Dickinson) and Google Scholar (scholar.google.com/citations?user=Aujv9qYAAAAJ&hl=en). For contributions to open-source software, see my GitHub profile (github.com/alex-dickinson). Education: 🎓 PhD in Geophysics and Physical Oceanography @ University of Cambridge 🎓 MSci and BA in Natural Sciences (Physics) @ University of Cambridge Interests: - Building repeatable workflows for analysis of geoscience data - Quantifying uncertainty using probabilistic methods - Compiling databases of standardized geoscience records
