Alexander holds two PhD degrees; in Numerical Analysis, AI/ML from the Technische Universiteit Delft (The Netherlands) and in Solid Mechanics from the Tula State University (Russia).
Before he entered the computational biology and bioinformatics field, he specialized in solid mechanics and fluid mechanics, applying to both tools such as numerical analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence to perform modelling, simulations, and optimizations of different multiphysics processes. His experience with “bio” started when he joined Harvard Medical School to work on projects with an interesting synergy of physics, mathematics, numerical analysis/optimization, AI/ML, quantitative system pharmacology, genomic analysis and system biology. By transferring concepts, principles, tools and approaches from the domain of numerical mathematics, AI/ML, computational chemistry, material sciences, continuum mechanics and computational particle mechanics into biological research, he was helping his colleagues biologists analyse their data with various AI/ML techniques, numerical methods and computational / bioinformatics tools.
In his role as the Scientific Director AI / ML, Uncertainty Analysis and Quantifications at BISC Global, Alexander is the mastermind behind finding the ways how our customers can benefit from the opportunities that machine learning and deep learning offer when applied to their data, along with bioinformatics and statistical methods. Alexander focuses on digitizing lab experiments utilizing synergy between laboratory machines and software systems leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning methods for advanced design.
“What I enjoy the most at my work at BISC Global is the variety and dynamics of the projects. In the bioinformatics consultancy world I‘m able to meet many different customers and tackle very diverse, multidisciplinary problems. The projects we are involved in are embedded in cutting-edge technologies and so frequently we must come up with ingenious, creative approaches. And I really like this challenge. ”
Alexander is a fan of winter sports and whenever possible he goes with his son snowboarding and playing ice hockey. As a former competitive mathematician, he now helps local school kids preparing for the MIT and Harvard math competitions.
