Alex Chediak's Bio:

Born and raised in Chicago, IL, Alex Chediak earned a B.S. Degree at Alfred University in Ceramic Engineering and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Material Science & Engineering from U.C. Berkeley. From 2005-2007 he was one of about twenty four apprentices at The Bethlehem Institute, a masters-level theological training program overseen by Pastors John Piper and Tom Steller. Alex is now an Associate Professor of Engineering and Physics at California Baptist University.

He enjoys writing to young adult audiences, having written numerous articles for Boundless and Tabletalk (Ligonier Ministries). As a professor, he wants to help students and young adults develop their God-given potential so that in all things Jesus Christ might be magnified in them. That passion gave rise to his most recent book, Thriving at College.

Alex and his wife Marni have three children, Karis, Jonathan, and Abigail. He enjoys reading, tennis, swimming, and spending time with wife and kids. Prior to becoming a professor, Alex spent a few years in the semiconductor industry in positions ranging from manufacturing to process development.
