In October 2017, she joined the Graduiertenkolleg “Authority and Trust in American Culture, Society, History, and Politics” (GKAT), an interdisciplinary research training group at the Heidelberg Center for American Studies (HCA) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) where she accomplished her doctorate in December 2021.

In her PhD dissertation, Aleksandra investigated the mechanisms of public distrust of the institutional news media in the United States and provided original insights into its ideologically asymmetrical nature.
