More about Dr. Alexus McLeod

If Alexus didn't have to work anymore, he would still want to keep studying Chinese philosophy. He likes what he does and wouldn't want to stop. However, he would like to write more fiction, as he is currently working on a novel, but doesn't have as much time as he would like to work on it.

Alexus thinks most people wouldn't know that taekwondo is one of his hobbies.

Learning and scholarship are what Alexus enjoys most about his job. Alexus likes learning about new things and his job provides him with the opportunity to continually learn.

One thing on Alexus's bucket list would be to get a PhD in physics, because that is the area he was interested in before philosophy.

Alexus and his children have recently started an aquarium at their home. Taking care of the fish and the aquarium has become a new hobby for Alexus and his family. Alexus also enjoys math. In his spare time, he likes to read mathematical journals and work on problems for fun.

The most exciting thing that has happened to Alexus lately is that he went on the faculty trip to China last summer.
