Hi! My name is Alexander Amini. I am an undergraduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), studying computer science and electrical engineering. During the 2012-2013 academic year I worked as a Research Fellow in the MIT SENSEable City Lab under the supervision of Professor Carlo Ratti. I grew up in New York, and then moved to Dublin, Ireland, where I attended high school at Castleknock College. I was named European Union Young Scientist of 2011 with my project entitled: Tennis Sensor Data Analysis: An Automated System for Macro Motion Refinement. I qualified for this competition by winning the top award at my national competition, as did 87 other competitors from 37 different countries from all around the world. I was also named the BT Young Scientist of Ireland in 2010.
