Alexander Dzyuba
Postdoctoral Research Associate

Alexander is working on developing and implementing novel, health-boosting interventions for society. He focuses on efficient scientific evaluation of such strategies, including various data analysis approaches. Currently he is interested in understanding the mind-gut connection in individual well-being. This research is concurrently evolving with a project investigating how different forced breathing patterns affect the psycho-emotional domain.

Alexander has a diverse background. He is a physicist by training and previously worked at U.S. National Labs on microstructural data collection and analysis. Later, he spent time in South/Southeast Asia studying various contemplative practices and participating in a number of remote retreats. Before joining the Center, he led his own project in the field of contemplative science in which he mostly engaged with medical centers.
