Alexander Gundlach-Graham

Alexander Gundlach-Graham received his B.A. in chemistry from Earlham College in 2008.  He obtained his Ph.D. in 2013 from Indiana University under the supervision of Prof. Gary Hieftje.  Alex’s Ph.D. research focused on the development of distance-of-flight mass spectrometry.  In 2014, Alex joined the group of Prof. Detlef Günther at ETH Zurich as a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Scholar.  At ETH, his research centered on the combination of laser ablation with inductively coupled plasma time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ICP-TOFMS) for high-resolution elemental imaging and on the detection of engineered nanoparticles by single-particle ICP-TOFMS.  Alex joins the faculty of Iowa State as an Assistant Professor in August 2019.
