About the speaker

Eva Andrei is an experimental condensed matter physicist recognized for her work on low dimensional electron systems, including two-dimensional electrons on helium, magnetically induced Wigner crystal  in  semiconductor heterojunctions and vortices in superconductors. She is known particularly for her ground-breaking work on the electronic properties of graphene, a one-atom thick membrane of crystalline carbon with extraordinary electronic properties stemming from charge carriers that behave like ultra-relativistic particles.

Following an undergraduate degree from Tel Aviv University Andrei received her Physics PhD from Rutgers University. In 1987, after post-doctoral work at Bell laboratories, she joined Rutgers as an assistant professor of Physics.
