Mr. Alex Hughes specializes in managing the execution of large-scale data collection efforts across the globe. His expertise helps clients implement data-driven design decisions that improve next-generation consumer products.
Mr. Hughes supports the development of a wide array of products, including wearables, micromobility platforms, biometrics, AI, and augmented reality platforms. He works with clients to ensure that those products perform for all users by implementing ethical, privacy-centric data collection with maximally diverse datasets. His efforts serve to minimize data bias while preserving data quality. Mr. Hughes has spearheaded projects throughout the United States, Africa, India, and Asia.
Mr. Hughes has a M.S. in Physics from Stanford University, where his research focused on developing electronic devices in strongly-correlated 2-D electron systems. He has extensive experience with ultra-low-noise cryogenic electronic measurements, including creating custom measurement hardware to reduce vibrations and acoustic noise. He also has programmed electronic simulations and written low-level measurement control software.
