Alexander graduated from the University of Freiburg, Germany, in 2014 with a Master’s degree in biology. His studies focused on molecular biology, anaerobic microbiology, biochemistry and enzymology. In 2015, he started a PhD project in the Sunna group as part of the ARC Training Centre for Molecular Technology in the Food Industry. Application-driven research always has been his special interest, fitting the group’s profile and expertise perfectly. Currently, he is working on the valorisation of Euglena gracilis, a mixotrophic protist, and its storage polysaccharide, paramylon. To balance his research activities, he likes to go swimming, snorkelling and sport shooting, as well as to participate in social events.
