Eva Y. Andrei is a Board of Governors Chaired professor in the department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers University.
Andrei is an experimental condensed matter physict recognized for her work on low dimensional electron systems. She is best known for the discovery of the electronic properties of twisted bilayer graphene including the observation of van-Hove singularities and the formation of flat bands at small twist angles , the renormalization of the Fermi velocity  and more recently the observation of nematic charge order . Andrei’s 2009 discovery of the fractional quantum Hall effect in graphene  was listed by Science magazine among the top 10 scientific breakthroughs of the year. She was awarded the French CEA Medal of Physics for her ground-breaking work on the magnetically induced Wigner crystal in GaAs/GaAlAs heterojunctions . In addition Andrei has studied the dynamic and thermodynamic properties of the Wigner crystal in the two-dimensional system of electrons on helium, and the dynamics of vortices in superconductors.
Andrei is a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAA&S), fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS).
Andrei is currently chair of the Division of Condensed Matter Physics of the American Physical Society. She holds journal editorial positions for the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences, Solid State Communications and 2D Materials. Her previously held positions including Chair of the Physics division of the AAAS and Chair of the Condensed Matter and Materials Research Committee for the National Research Council.
