Alex Deaconu

Undergraduate Research Assistant

EME 1212




I am a third-year Computer Science student at UBC Vancouver who is fascinated by artificial intelligence and its potential to transform the way we live and work. I am pursuing this passion through my UBC courses and personal projects, and now through my work at CRN. In the last year, I gained valuable experience in full-stack software development through a year-long internship with a Vancouver start-up. I am thrilled to apply my software development and machine learning skills as part of the multidisciplinary team at CRN. Joining the team is an incredible opportunity for me to learn and grow in the field of machine learning and contribute to cutting edge science.
Besides software and AI, I love walking downtown, being in nature, reading philosophy and listening to classic rock music.
