2007 - 2012:

M.S. in Physics
Center for Photochemical Sciences
Bowling Green State University, USA
Advisor: Mikhail Zamkov; GPA: 3.7 (out of 4.0)

2007 - 2012:

Visiting Scientist,
Teaching and Research Assistant
Bowling Green State University, USA

In 2007, Alexander moved to the US with his spouse, and the next career step took his research from microscale to nanoscale. In the Center for Photochemical Sciences, he developed the nanocrystal-based devices routing solar energy: solar cells, light emitting films, infrared detectors, and field-effect transistors.

Striking for perfection of research work, Alexander introduced automation of lab techniques, often redesigned experiments, and when needed, installed vacuum, argon, heat, and water lines. For these skills, he was later hired for a position of Technical Assistant at the University of Wyoming.

While working on his graduate degree, Alexander have also been instructing experimental physics laboratories. Taking the lead over 45 undergraduate students a semester, he developed leadership qualities and improved his presentation skills.



2004 - 2007:

Non-degree Graduate Studies in Microbiology
Department of Reproductive Biology
Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia
Advisor: Tatiana Batygina; GPA: 4.5 (out of 5.0)

2004 - 2007:

Research Assistant
Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia

In the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexander worked in a team with experienced scientists and used every opportunity to learn new research strategies and experimental techniques. Access to the largest in Russia scientific library allowed Alexander to develop his academic language and patent/article search skills.

In scientific work, he investigated stages of plant cell development via confocal fluorescent microscopy and exciton-enhanced near-field microscopy. Further, Alexander used AutoCAD and 3D Max software to model early stages of cell proliferation. His research project was selected by the First International School for Young Scientists for the conference presentation.

To enhance the quality of his work, Alexander maintained and improved (sometimes automated) the lab equipment, including microscopes, mantle systems, thermostats, and computers. While working as a research assistant, Alexander also took the opportunity to accomplish non-degree graduate program in Microbiology.



1999 - 2004:

M.S. in Biochemistry / Agrochemistry
Plant Protection / Pesticides and Agrochemicals
Saint Petersburg State Agricultural University, Russia
Advisor: Anatoliy Anisimov; GPA: 4.8 (out of 5.0)

2003 - 2004:

Research Assistant
Saint Petersburg State Agricultural University, Russia

Alexander started his research career with the graduate project, where he investigated predator-prey interaction on greenhouse plants. To accomplish the task, Alexander built novel metrology equipment and developed statistical methods for modeling parasite-host distribution, with the use of AutoCAD and 3D design software.

Alexander graduated with honors, and his thesis project was selected for a joint (Russia-Sweden) conference presentation. A year later, his development engineering skills made him a successful candidate for a research position at the Russian Academy of Sciences.
