Alec's advisor is Dr. Thomas Hunt.

Alec has spent the last ten years working concurrently as a rowing coach and graduate student. The intersection of these interests has lead him to focus his doctoral research on the use of sport as a tool of empire. His focus is currently centered on late 19th century Germany looking the impact of sport (both domestic and international) on the formation of the modern nation.
