Dr. Alexey Kopyshev graduated from Sankt-Petersburg State University (Russia) in 2001 with a degree Master of Science in Biophysics with topic «Interaction of DNA with synthetic polymer polyallylamin in solution with different ionic strength». In 2002 he joined the AFM group (Dr. Svetlana Santer) at the Chair for Chemistry and Physics of Interfaces (Prof. Dr. Jurgen Ruhe) at IMTEK as a PhD student. He received his PhD in November 2006 from Freiburg University with the thesis "Motion of nanoparticles by/on polymer brushes". From December 2006 to December 2008 he joined the AFM group (Dr. Elena Mena-Osteritz) at the Institute of Organic Chemistry II and Advanced Materials (Prof. Dr. Peter Bauerle) at the Ulm University as a postdoctoral fellow. In 2009 he joined the AFM group of PD. Dr. Svetlana Santer in the School for Soft Matter Research at FRIAS as postdoctoral fellow. Since January 2010 he is working at Experimental Physics of Potsdam University as a PostDoc in the group of the Prof. Dr. Svetlana Santer.
