Profile picture of Alex Michalos Alex not only has a passion for, but is an internationally recognized expert in, social indicators research. The CIW was fortunate to engage Alex after a career researching how to measure the quality of life in Canada and abroad. As our second Senior Research Advisor, he deftly managed the peer review process for the CIW’s eight baseline domain reports and developed the methodology for the CIW's signature product, the CIW composite index.
