Alexandre Tkatchenko is a Professor and Head of the Theoretical Chemical Physics group at the University of Luxembourg. 

He obtained his bachelor degree in Computer Science and a PhD in Physical Chemistry at the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana in Mexico City. In 2008−2010, he was an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin. Between 2011 and 2016, he led an independent research group at the same institute.

Tkatchenko has given more than 200 invited talks, seminars and colloquia worldwide, published more than 130 articles in peer-reviewed academic journals (h-index=50), and serves on the editorial boards of Physical Review Letters and Science Advances (an open-access journal in the Science family).

He received a number of awards, including the Gerhard Ertl Young Investigator Award of the German Physical Society, and two flagship grants from the European Research Council: a Starting Grant in 2011 and a Consolidator Grant in 2017. His group pushes the boundaries of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and machine learning to develop efficient methods to enable accurate modeling and new insights into complex materials.
