Albrecht Jander received his Masters and Ph.D. degrees from Washington University in St. Louis. He co-directs the Applied Magnetics Laboratory with Pallavi Dhagat, where they are pushing the boundaries of what can be done with magnetics. They focus on areas of magnetics that few others are working on and where they can make their mark in doing innovative advanced work.
