Eva Y. Andrei

Eva Y. Andrei is a Board of Governors Chaired professor in the department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers University and a Moore foundation EPiQS investigator


She is an experimental condensed matter physict recognized for her work on low dimensional electron systems. Andrei 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 [1], the renormalization of the Fermi velocity [2] and  the observation of nematic charge order [3].

  • 2023 Winner of the   inaugural Mildred Dresselhaus Prize in Nanoscience or Nanomaterials awarded by the American Physical Society
  • Her 2009 discovery of the fractional quantum Hall effect in graphene [4] was listed by Science magazine among the top 10 scientific breakthroughs of the year.
  • Awarded the French CEA Medal of Physics for her ground-breaking work on the magnetically induced Wigner crystal in GaAs/GaAlAs heterojunctions [5].


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).


She served as chair of the Division of Condensed Matter Physics of the American Physical Society;   Chair of the Physics division of the AAAS, and Chair of the Condensed Matter and Materials Research Committee for the National Research Council. Andrei holds journal editorial positions for the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences, Solid State Communications and 2D Materials.
