My name is Alex Palmer. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with Departmental Honors from High Point University with a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science and a Bachelors of Arts in Mathematics in May of 2013. I also minored in Physics.
In late May 2013 I began my career as a Developer in dunnhumbyUSA's Innovation Lab. dunnhumbyUSA is the global leader in Consumer Science. At dunnhumbyUSA I am responsible for Innovation Lab system, API and Android development. During my time there I have worked on everything from creating partnerships with outside companies to augment what we're building to writing recommender systems. Though I don't currently have much experience in Machine Learning, it is an area that I am actively studying in the hopes that I can someday design and implement new algorithms that help people solve problems before they ask and allow people to live easier lives.
As for my personal interests, having lived in Northern California for most of my adult life I am an oenophile. I love visiting Napa and Sonoma to taste the many great California wines. Shafer, Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel and Caymus are my favorite Vineyards. My favorite varietal is Cabernet Sauvignon. I also enjoy biking, hiking and numerous watersports. Some of my fondest memories are exploring the beautiful California cost with friends and family. There's nothing quite like hiking Yosemite, biking through Napa or driving through the twists and turns of Highway.
