Alex Russell studied his PhD through the School of Psychology at the University of Sydney, supervised by Professor Bob Boakes. His research examined how people learn to identify elements in wine samples and whether they can be trained to improve their performance over a short period of time. His fourth-year project was also based on wine perception, examining the verbal overshadowing effect in wine descriptions.  During his time at the University of Sydney, he was heavily involved in teaching the various statistical and research methods courses in the School of Psychology as a Tutor, Senior Tutor, Casual Lecturer and Course Coordinator. He has also taught quantitative methods in the School of Business at the University of Sydney and has guest lectured at the Sydney campus for New York University.  His recognised strengths in quantitative research led to him joining the Centre for Gambling Education and Research at Southern Cross University with Professor Nerilee Hing and Dr Sally Gainsbury. In this position, he is involved in many of the Centre's research projects as Chief Statistical Analyst.
