Alex received his master’s degree at Saint-Petersburg State University (Russia) in computational and applied physics. His undergraduate research project was on the topic of the self-adapting algorithm based on the super-convergence of the solution applied for the finite elements method solver of elliptic partial derivative equations.
After graduating from the university, Alex worked in the German Federal Institute of Materials Research and Testing (BAM). Continuing in the field of his undergraduate studies, he worked with mathematical simulation of the physical processes in laser-induced micro-sparks. More specifically, the topic of the research project was the calibration-free spectral analysis of the spectra from laser-induced micro-spark plasmas.
At the beginning of 2017 he joined Dr. Coray Colina’s group with research aimed towards the molecular dynamic simulations of amorphous polymeric systems, focusing on the development of automated tools for molecular dynamic simulations.
