Alexander grew up in Wil, St. Gallen, Switzerland. He studied mechanical engineering at ETH Zurich, where he developed an interest in dynamic systems and control. During his Bachelor’s degree, he participated in Formula Student as an Academic Motorsports Club Zurich (AMZ) team member, where he became interested in vehicle dynamics. As a result, he did an internship at Bosch Chassis Systems Control in Germany, focusing on vehicle state estimation.
