Alex Horton, Research Scientist & Director
After focussing on theoretical and computational modules during his Physics Masters, Alex pursued a successful career in finance with a core focus on technology. All roles involved big-data analysis applying complex, analytical, what-if scenarios to billions of data points. Over his 10+ years, multiple systems and approaches were leveraged to tackle the similar problems ranging from Microsoft databases, to Oracle, to proprietary distributed in-memory solutions, to Hadoop. He is now returning to his scientific routes, applying his wealth of knowledge and experience in the EO field.
