Sir Konstantin Sergeevich "Kostya" Novoselov, FRS, HonFRSC, FInstP (Russian: Константи́н Серге́евич Новосёлов; born 23 August 1974) is a Russo-British physicist, known for his works on graphene together with Andre Geim, which earned them the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010. Novoselov is currently Professor of Physics in the mesoscopic physics research group at the University of Manchester and a Royal Society University Research Fellow. Novoselov is also a recipient of an ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council.
Early life 
Konstantin Novoselov was born in Nizhny Tagil, Soviet Union, in 1974 in a Russian family. He graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and undertook his Ph.D. studies at the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands before moving to the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom with his doctoral advisor Andre Geim in 2001. He now holds both Russian and British citizenship. He is married and has two daughters.
Together with Geim, Novoselov has published more than 90 peer-reviewed research papers on several topics including mesoscopic superconductivity (Hall magnetometry), subatomic movements of magnetic domain walls, the discovery of gecko tape and graphene.
He is a director of National Graphene Institute, which is being built in Manchester with the £38M investment from the British government.
