Andre GEIMPhD, Institute of Solid State Physics, Chernogolovka, Russia (1981)
- Sir Andre Geim is the Regius and Royal Society Research Professor at the University of Manchester. He was awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking work on graphene, a one-atom-thick material made of carbon. He has also received numerous international awards and distinctions, including medals from the US National Academy of Sciences and the UK Royal Society, and holds honorary doctorates and professorships from many countries.
- Thomson-Reuters repeatedly named him among the world’s most active scientists and attributed to him three new research fronts – diamagnetic levitation, gecko tape and graphene. He was also awarded the IgNobel prize in 2000 for his work on levitation, becoming the first and only recipient of both Nobel and IgNobel Prizes. He has also received both Dutch and British knighthoods.
