Alexander studied physics at TU Chemnitz (Germany) and at the University of Warwick (UK), where he also got his MSc (by Research). For his PhD he joined the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPIPKS) in Dresden. There, he worked with Prof. Ulf Saalmann on time-dependent nano electronics. After defending his thesis and being postdoc at MPIPKS and TU Chemnitz, Alexander joined the Condensed Matter Theory group at Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden). Working with Prof. J. Kinaret and Prof. A. Isacsson the focus of his research shifted to (carbon-based) nanoelectromechanical systems. In 2014 he became Distinguished PKS Postdoctoral Fellow at the MPIPKS. In July 2016 he joined the chair of Prof. Cuniberti and plans to work on computational nanomechanics.
