Dr. Alex Alexeev received his Ph.D. in Physics from Odessa National University in 1996. After his dissertation defense, he worked for the Department of Physics at the Odessa Hydrometerological Institute (Odessa State  Ecological University) teaching physics, modeling and radioecology.

In 2001, he came to the United States to study environmental management and stayed for doctoral study. In 2010 he received his Ph.D. in Public Affairs from Indiana University with specializations in policy analysis and business economics. He has been a lecturer at IU since 2017 and prior to that was a visiting lecturer since 2015, teaching courses in data analysis and statistical modeling.

His interdisciplinary research interests include quantitative policy analysis, risk and security modelling, benefit-cost analysis, and environmental economics.

Starting in 2014 he became a part of the risk-modeling group in the project “Models for Enabling Continuous Reconfigurability of Secure Missions” sponsored by the U.S. ARL Cybersecurity Collaborative Research Alliance (Csec CRA).
