My name is Alex, and I’m at school studying for my GCSEs, as well as an A Level in physics. In fact, almost done now – the exams are in a few weeks. Next year, I’ll be doing A Levels in Latin, French and Biology. I’m also currently studying for my MPhil in mathematics (I got my degree last year!). My research area is gravitation and general relativity – including some cool stuff like black holes! However, I’m also interested in electromagnetism, astronomy, high energy physics and nanotechnology.
My other interests and hobbies include digital photography, 3D art, programming (C++), listening to (and occasionally composing) music, and playing video games. In particular, I like Portal 2, Company of Heroes and Red Faction Guerilla. I’ve also been playing Half Life 2 recently. In case you’re wondering, yes I have taken a look at the Source SDK. But the problem is, there are a number of annoying setup issues, so I’ve given it a miss for now.
If you want to know more about my experiences with programming in the past, and how I came to use C++ and SFML, then you’ll have to wait. Hopefully I’ll write an article all about that in the end
