Scholar Profiles

Alex Hermoso

Home Campus: Duke

Hometown: Northridge, CA

Intended Major: Sociology and Computer Science

What are you curious about and hope to explore as a Scholar? 

I’m determined to explore the many ways in which technology—programs, AI, and social media, to name a few—can be used to solve deep societal issues. In my hometown, I’ve seen the impact of digital resources on guaranteeing equal educational opportunities, but I’ve only just scratched the surface. As a scholar, I hope to better understand the intersection between technology and society and find more tangible ways to benefit our future generations.
