AES Mid-Career Award

2020 Recipient

Alexandra Ros

Dr. Alexandra Ros is Professor in the School of Molecular Sciences and faculty member of the Center for Applied Structural Discovery (CASD) at the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University. She received her Diploma in Chemistry from the Ruprecht-Karls-University in Heidelberg, Germany, and her PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. Since her PhD, Dr. Ros has been interested in microfluidic platforms and their analytical applications. Dr. Ros joined the Biophysics and Nanoscience Group at Bielefeld University, Germany, in 2000 where she followed her interests in microfluidics and biophysics during her post doctoral training. From 2001-2007, she served as principle investigator at Bielefeld University, Germany, on several projects investigating migration mechanisms and single cell analysis in the microfluidic format. In 2007, she finished her Habilitation and received the Venia Legendi in Experimental Physics from Bielefeld University. Dr. Ros joined Arizona State University in 2008 as Assistant Professor where she was promoted to Associate Professor in 2014 and Professor in 2020. In 2014, she also became faculty member of the Center for Applied Structural Discovery (CASD) at the Biodesign Institute and was appointed visiting scientist at the Georg-August University G√∂ttingen, Germany, in 2015-16. She is recipient of an NSF Career Award, a Fellowship for Experienced Researchers from the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation, Germany, and the FACSS Innovation Award. Dr. Ros’ current research interests include migration mechanisms in the micro- and nanoenvironment for biomolecules and sub-cellular species with a focus on electrokinetic methods, hyphenation of analytical approaches for single cell analysis, and developing microfluidic tools for emerging crystallography techniques.
