Victor A. Brumberg is a theoretical physicist specializing in relativistic celestial mechanics and astrometry. He once worked as a chief-scientist at the Institute of Applied Astronomy, Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg. He is noted for his work on celestial mechanics and ephemerides. He is currently living in the United States of America.

Brumberg is a member of the scientific committee for projects under the IAU Commission 4: Ephemerides. He received the 2008 Brower Award from the Division of Dynamic Astronomy of the American Astronomical Society. The Brouwer Award was established to recognize outstanding contributions to the field of Dynamical Astronomy, including celestial mechanics, astrometry, geophysics, stellar systems, galactic and extragalactic dynamics.
