Alexander has a Bachelor of Telecommunications Engineering (Honours) from the University of Adelaide, where he studied as a Charles Hawker Memorial Scholar. With his John Monash Scholarship, he will undertake an MPhil in Energy Technologies at the University of Cambridge and plans to return to the Australian energy sector. Volunteering in Timor-Leste instilled Alexander with a strong desire to support the sustainable development of Australia's neighbours and to lead the world in addressing shared challenges, such as climate change. Alexander aims to help create the next generation of reliable, inexpensive and low-emissions energy systems and to further the use of scientific modelling in public policy.
