Eva Andrei, Ph.D.

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

Eva Andrei is a Board of Governors Professor of Physics in the department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers University, specializing in the electronic properties two-dimensional materials.

She is a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She is the recipient of the Medal of Physics from the French CEA and of the Rutgers Board of Trustees Award for Excellence in Research.

Andrei joined Rutgers in 1987, following an undergraduate degree from Tel Aviv University, a physics Ph.D. from Rutgers University and postdoctoral research at Bell laboratories. She held visiting positions at the CEA Saclay in France, Jerusalem University and the Weizmann Institute in Israel.

Her current research focuses on the electronic properties of graphene and its heterostructures probed through scanning tunneling microscopy, spectroscopy and transport measurements. She is known particularly for her 2010 discovery of van-Hove singularities and correlated phenomena in twisted graphene bilayers and for her 2009 discovery of the fractional quantum Hall effect in graphene.

Andrei is currently serving in the chair line of the American Physical Society Division of Condensed Matter Physics. She has served as vice chair of the Condensed Matter and Materials Research Committee for the National Research Council and was the chair of the physics division of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She is an editor of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and of 2D Materials and serves on the editorial board of Solid State Communications.
