Alexander P Browning
Hi, I’m Alex, a PhD student at QUT in Brisbane, Australia. My research interests include applied mathematics problems that use individual based models, inference techniques, optimal control, and, recently, materials science. I am also the previous partner in Canvas Digital Media, where I created websites and videography projects for clients in Brisbane.
Aside from completing a Master of Philosophy and studying for a Doctor of Philosophy, I worked as a Research Assistant for Professor Matthew Simpson for 6 months from mid-2017 to early-2018. During this time, I produced one first author publication and one second author publication. The projects I worked on used mathematical modelling techniques to describe pattern formation and invasion of melanoma cells.
I completed the Bachelor of Mathematics at the Queensland University of Technology in 2015, with a High Distinction. I went on to study a Masters of Philosophy under Professor Matthew Simpson and Professor Scott McCue, at the Queensland University of Technology, which I completed in mid-2017.
I have attended, and presented, at the following conferences:
I lectured the first half of MXB107: Introduction to Statistical Modelling, in Semester 2, 2018. I was also ‘super tutor’ for this unit, and worked on creating assessment items for this unit.
I have been a sessional academic at QUT since 2016. During this time I have tutored a range of first and second year undergraduate mathematics subjects, including MZB125 (Introductory Engineering Mathematics), MAB141 (Mathematics and Statistics for Health Sciences), MXB161 (Computational Explorations), MXB107 (Introduction to Statistical Modelling), LQB284 (Biomedical Skills 2), MXB261 (Modelling and Simulation Science) and MZB126 (Engineering Computation).
Private Tutoring Experience
I created, and ran, the private tutoring business ‘AB Tutors’ from 2013 – 2016. During this time I tutored over ten high school students in Mathematics, Advanced Mathematics and Physics.
