Albert's background is in computational physics, combining materials science and high-performance computing. He studied Applied Physics in Munich and Nottingham. Albert received his Ph.D. at the Max-Planck Institute in Düsseldorf for developing classical models for the -in reality- quantum mechanical interactions of atoms and electrons. To apply his models to real-world materials, he continued his research at EPFL (Lausanne) performing simulations using feedforward neural network. Albert joined the SDSC in March 2022 as a Systems Engineer.
