For over twenty years Alexander has worked in the field of technology, specifically online technologies and has had a diverse career from technical management roles to training and teaching. In 2005 Alexander decided to investigate the impact of technology on society and returned to University to study these issues as a sociologist, then in 2008 moved into privacy advocacy full time.

In April 2009, Alexander joined Privacy International to manage their online privacy portfolio. During his time at Privacy International, he spoke at dozens of conferences around the world on issues of privacy, identity and the impact of technology on human rights – giving speeches from Brazil to Beijing. Furthermore, Alexander filed complaints with regulators on issues regarding online privacy and engaged in stakeholder consultations with a number of public sector bodies including the FTC, European Commission, UK Home Office and various other public and private sector organisations on issues ranging from Online Behavioural Advertising, ePrivacy, Surveillance and Identity.

He left Privacy International in January 2012 after nearly three years to pursue his interests in privacy enhancing solutions and technologies and currently advises organisations focused on these issues across the globe.
