As a first-year law student, Alex was very excited to be a member of Ian Kerr's research team, assisting in exploring issues that arise at the intersection of law, policy and robotics. After graduating from the English Common Law Program at the University of Ottawa, she spent a year practicing plaintiff side class-action law in Toronto, before returning to pursue her graduate studies. In 2015 she graduated from the BCL degree at the University of Oxford, St. Hugh's College. She is currently a doctoral student at the University of Oxford, St. Peter's College, where she is researching intellectual property law, specifically certification marks. In 2016-2017 she clerked for Justice Cromwell's Chambers at the Supreme Court of Canada. Working with Ian taught her how curiosity and passion can drive academic research-- a lesson which has continued to inspire her.
