Personal

Welcome to my homepage. I am Alexander Wong.

I was born into the millennial demographic cohort.
My first computer was the Tandy 1000, where I spent many summers playing old Sierra text adventure games like Kings Quest and Manhunter.

I currently reside in Alberta, Canada.
I am employed by a large financial software company that focuses on personal finance, small-business/self-employed book keeping, and tax return software.

I obtained my master’s degree (convocation June 2021) at the University of Alberta, Department of Computing Science.
My research involved the classification and analysis of 12-lead electrocardiograms using a variety of signal processing and feature extraction methods, as well as shallow and deep machine learning techniques.
