Réka Albert (born 2 March 1972) is a Romanian-born Hungarian scientist. She is professor of physics and adjunct professor of biology at Pennsylvania State University and is noted for the Barabási–Albert model and research into scale-free networks and Boolean modeling of biological systems.
Her work extends to networks in a very general sense, involving for instance investigations on the error tolerance of the world-wide web and on the vulnerability of the North American power grid.
