Alexander Gramolin

Research Scientist


Alexander is an experimental physicist with over a decade of experience in high-precision measurements. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, where he helped to perform a precise comparison of the elastic electron-proton and positron-proton scattering cross sections. After graduating in 2017, Alexander worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Sushkov’s lab at Boston University, which specialises in quantum sensors and table-top searches for dark matter.

Alexander was the driving force behind the SHAFT experiment, which used superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) to achieve some of the strongest laboratory limits on ultralight axion-like dark matter.

Being passionate about both physics and programming, Alexander is excited to work with Riverlane on making useful quantum computing a reality. In his free time, he enjoys movies, mathematical puzzles, exploring the outdoors on foot and bicycle, Uzbek food, and traveling to new places.
