BIOTECHNOLOGY

Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institue

I’m the Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) at ARMI, a non-profit technology company with the goal of building the U.S. regenerative manufacturing industry and to make practical the large-scale manufacturing of engineered tissues and tissue-related technologies, to benefit existing industries and grow new ones.

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

At the DoD, I was the first Head of Biotechnology in the Office of the CTO, where I led the development of enterprise biotech strategy and the modernization roadmap. 

DARTMOUTH COLLEGE

At Dartmouth, I used AI and data science to study biology, how it changes from person to person, and to build new algorithm to improve health and wellbeing.

About Alexander

A career driven by impact, and a life driven by adventure

Industry

My career spans the software startup world of Silicon Valley to innovative companies focused on the future of biotechnology. I value companies with a mission-driven focus, that believe in a positive impact on society as much as the return on investment.

Academia

I’m an eternal student, curious about the world, and passionate about my role as an educator. My work spans studying the molecular nature of breast cancer to the data driven nature of technology, and policy ideas at the intersection of society, security, and technology. 

Government

I am not one to sit on the outside and wish others would make a difference. I’ve served stints in the government, most recently leading biotechnology modernization at the Department of Defense, working to bring new technologies to national security.

Personal

Life is only as rich as the people we get to share it with. My family, friends, and colleagues are the central focus of my energy. I work to share my wonder about life with them, and learn from the lessons they can teach me about patience, compassion, and drive.

DATA SCIENCE

A data-driven look at the world around us

A large portion of my time and energy is spent thinking about how we can use data to improve our lives. I’m a Data Scientist by training, and have worked across industry, goverment, and academia to develop and apply new ways to look at the world with data.

IN-Q-TEL

At IQT, I developed new ways to look at biological data safely and securely

AMAZON

At Amazon, I helped to improve the Alexa interactive user experience

DARTMOUTH-HITCHCOCK MEDICAL

At DHMC, my work helped doctors and scientists study biology and medicine

DARTMOUTH COLLEGE

At Dartmouth, I studied the environment’s impact on variation in cancer and disease

EXPLORING THE WORLD

The secret to life is to

live the life you want 

and fill it with people

I have quit my job and traveled the world, I’ve riden my bike from Alaska to California, and I’ve filled my life with amazing people. I believe there is no divide between personal adventure and professional success – and I live it every day
