Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Curious to a fault, Alex has been known to dismantle almost anything to understand how it functions. She has a voracious need for knowledge, and a drive to seek it out, often to a detriment to social and familial connections. She spent much of her youth alone with her head deep in a PADD. She has a keen interest in computers and linguistics which initially led her into synthetic intelligence research and development, but she changed tack and joined Starfleet Academy when she felt a need to learn more beyond what her job entailed.
High capacity for learning, and can grasp concepts quickly, especially linguistics.
|Weaknesses||Weak social skills, more at ease with a computer than a person. Her curiosity has often gotten her into trouble.
Because she knows a lot she often comes across as having a superiority complex, a bit of a know it all, which compounds her poor social abilities.
|Hobbies & Interests||Reading and research
Alternate history holonovels
Hypothetical math problems (not that she's overly good at math)
|Personal History||A loner for most of a adolescent years, Alex rarely formed any close attachments with any of her peers.
At Aberystwyth University she had a small group of friends, but that was difficult for her to maintain when she went to work for Synthitel Designs in Quebec.
While she had many work colleagues at Synthitel, it wasn't until she joined Starfleet that she had some real connections; her roommate, Kelsia Tynn and Alex bonded over studies and the difficulties of the physical rigours of Starfleet training and became close friends and still maintain contact to this day.

|Service Record||After graduating from Starfleet Academy, she served on the USS Kadek as a junior Linguistics officer within the science department, for three years before receiving her assignment to the USS Arizona.
|Medical Profile||Nothing of relevance.
|Psychological Profile||Potential neurological developmental disorder, Starfleet Academy counsellors have cleared her for active duty and feel that any issues she might have would have a negligible effect upon her duties.
