Alec received his BA in chemistry from Whitman College in 2012, and in 2017, graduated from UC Berkeley with a PhD in chemistry. At Berkeley, he worked under the supervision of Martin Head-Gordon and Bill McCurdy to develop ab initio electronic structure methods for molecular resonances. In September 2017, Alec joined Garnet Chan's group as a postdoctoral researcher where he is currently working on various generalizations of coupled cluster approaches.
