Alexander Fyodorovich Andreev (Russian: Александр Фёдорович Андреев, born sk) is a Russian theoretical physicist known for explaining the eponymous Andreev reflection.[1] Andreev was educated at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology starting in 1959 and graduating ahead of schedule in 1961, having been mentored by Landau. [2]

Since 1979, Andreev has been a professor at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. He focuses on the physics of superconductivity, quantum liquids and solids, surface phenomena and magnetism.

Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Sciences (1991—2013).
