Alex born and raised in cologne, Germany.

He received his Ph.D. degree for his work on thiosemicarbzone complexes and their conjugation to peptides. While he was writing his Ph.D. he was working in the reconstruction of the flood devastated Ahr Valley, where he did not just learn how to deconstruct buildings, but also found his love for good wine. Alex started his Postdoc in the MacMillan group in July 2022, but before that he continued volunteering and became the head of the logistics section of the Ukrainian aid organization “Blau-Gelbes Kreuz e.V.” without knowing anything about trucks or customs in the beginning.
