Sir Konstantin Sergeevich "Kostya" Novoselov, [6 ] FRS, HonFRSC, HonFInstP ( 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. [7 ] , Novoselov is currently Professor of Physics in the [8 ] mesoscopic physics research group at the University of Manchester and a Royal Society University Research Fellow. [9 ] , Novoselov is also a recipient of a starting grant [10 ] from the [11 ] European Research Council. [12 ] , [13 ] , [14 ] , [15 ]
Education [ edit ]
Konstantin Novoselov was born in
Nizhny Tagil, Soviet Union, in 1974 in a Russian family. He graduated from the [16 ] Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology with a MSc degree in 1997, and was awarded a [1 ] PhD degree from the Radboud University of Nijmegen in 2004 for work supervised by [3 ] Andre Geim.

Together with Geim, Novoselov has published more than 190
peer-reviewed research papers on several topics including mesoscopic superconductivity ( Hall magnetometry), subatomic movements of [17 ] magnetic domain walls, the discovery of [18 ] gecko tape and [19 ] graphene. [20 ] , [21 ]
Kostya Novoselov participated in the Graphene Flagship project
– a €1 billion initiative of the European Commission – and was featured in the official promotion movie of the project. [22 ] [23 ]
Novoselov is a director
National Graphene Institute. [24 ]
