Academic background

Alexander Rosemann studied electrical engineering at the University of Manchester and Technical University of Berlin , from which he graduated in 1997. He completed his master thesis at the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM). In 2001, he received his PhD for his work in the European research project ARTHELIO. From 2005 to 2007 he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

He has been involved with several standards and chaired several standard committees on energy-efficiency in lighting and electronics at the Canadian Standardization Association (CSA). Alexander was also a member of the Task Group Lighting and Electrical Power of the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings. He is actively involved in committees of CSA, CIE (International Commission on Illumination), the IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) and ISO (International Standardization Organization). Rosemann is member of the board on the Nederlandse Stichting Voor Verlichtingskunde (NSVV)
