Alex Duman, Ph.D.
Research and Data Scientist
Hi, my name is Alex and I just completed my doctorate in Biological Sciences where I researched biomechanics - how humans and animals move efficiently.
My fascination with biomechanics was sparked over a decade ago when I started running. I initially suffered from countless injuries, but once I started working on my form and discovered how physics and physiology blend to produce coordinated movements I was devoted to researching & learning more.
During grad school I realized how much I enjoy developing research questions, testing hypotheses and working through large and complex datasets to discover novel insights. I am now working as a Data Analyst at Aptive Resources to help optimize the mental health program outcomes for Veterans Health Administration.
