B. Andrei Bernevig

B. Andrei Bernevig is a Eugene and Mary Wigner Assistant Professor of physics at Princeton University. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2006 on the Quantum Spin Hall effect. He performed his post-doctoral research at the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science from 2006-2009 working on Fractional Quantum Hall effect and topological phases as well as on the physics of iron-based superconductors. He joined the faculty at Princeton University in September 2009. His recent interests combine topological insulators, topological phases, fractional quantum Hall effect and iron-based superconductors.
