Alexander Tesler

Dr. Alexander Tesler is a leading researcher at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Chemical Engineering from the Technion and his Ph.D. in Chemistry of Materials from the Department of Materials and Interfaces at the Weizmann Institute of Science under the supervision of Prof. Israel Rubinstein. After graduation, he spent several years at the Wyss Institute for Bioinspired Engineering and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University studying mechanically durable omniphobic liquid-infused slippery surfaces. His scientific interests ranged from non-wettable ultra-repellent surfaces for preventing corrosion and biofouling, self-assembling monolayers and plasmonic sensing to electrochemical methods for creating smart nanomaterials. Dr. Tesler’s scientific work has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals, including Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, Nano Energy, ACS Nano and ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces. His recent research was press released at the FAU news portal and at School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and WYSS Institute for Bioinspired Engineering at Harvard University.
