Hi Forbes! My name is Alex, and I am a senior from Pittsburgh, PA majoring in Politics and pursuing certificates in Political Economy and Statistics & Machine Learning. Academically, I'm interested in the study of development, predictive analytics, and – totally unrelated – Slavic literature. Outside of the classroom, you can find me playing trumpet in the pit orchestra for Triangle Club, volunteering at Princeton Nursery School with Community House's Preschool Program, working as a research assistant for a professor in the Politics department, whipping up dinner at the Real Food Co-op, religiously doing the New York Times crossword puzzle, or running at some ungodly hour of the morning. I've loved my first three years in Forbes and I'm super excited that I get to stick around for my last year as an RCA! Swing by room 212 any time to chat, play some Super Smash Bros., or join me on a 10-miler at 6:30am!
