Alexander is interested in interdisciplinary research, supported by his broad background as a physicist and mathematician. He applies dynamical systems theory through innovative numerical methods, such as high-order Differential Algebra methods, numerical optimization, and high performance computing, to a variety of problems in physics, astronomy, and astronautics.

As Aeronautics and Astronautics foreign exchange coordinator, he oversees the academic aspects of our exchange programs with partner universities in Europe and the US.

Students interested in participating in our exchange program, or current exchange students looking for further information, please see the Study Abroad section on the Aero Astro Program page on Blackboard for further details.
