Aleksandra has been pursuing her doctoral degree since March 2018 in the Technology Assessment Group under the supervision of Dr. Chris Mutel from PSI and Prof. Dr. Stefanie Hellweg from ETH Zurich. Aleksandra is part of the OASES project that addresses integrated sustainability assessment of Swiss pro- duction and consumption. Her academic interests are Uncertainty and Global Sensitivity Analysis (GSA) applied to high-dimensional Life Cycle Assessment models. She is particularly keen on studying robustness and convergence properties of GSA methods, as well as their computational complexity and efficient implementation.

Aleksandra received her Master degree from ETH Zurich in 2017 in the program “Robotics, Systems and Control”. Her research interests were in the area of control theory and optimisation methods applied to energy systems. In the span of her master studies she did an internship on Smart Grid applications at IBM Research in Zurich. Prior to that she conducted her Bachelor studies in Mechanical engineering in the Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Russia (2009-2013).
