Antoine Georges (born 14 April 1961) is a French physicist. He is professor at Collège de France and also at Ecole polytechnique.
Georges' passion for science began during his teen age years at his father's laboratory where he used to capture mice for his father's experiments at the French Institute of Health and Medical Research. In 1983 he graduated from the École Polytechnique and joined École Normale Supérieure. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1988 from Pierre-Gilles de Gennes.
In 1989, he became a postdoc at the Princeton University in order to work on high-critical-temperature superconductors in the lab of Phil Anderson and worked there till 1991. In autumn of 1990 he along with Gabriel Kotliar joined Rutgers University where they developed today's formulation of dynamical mean field theory by mapping it onto the self-consistent solution of a quantum impurity model. He also worked with Anirvan Sengupta on Kondo effects and performed theoretical work on spin glasses and quantum spin liquids along with Olivier Parcollet and Subir Sachdev.
In 2003 he relocated to the Centre de Physique Théorique, a division of École Polytechnique, and as of 2009 holds chairman position at the Collège de Frances' condensed matter physics. In February of the same year he became a teacher and professor at the Collège de France. In 2010 he was named Sommerfeld lecturer by the Ludwig Maximilian University and in 2011 became Schrödinger lecturer at the ETH Zurich. The same year he became a part-time professor at the University of Geneva and prior to all of it, he was a recipient of the Dargelos Prize in 2004 from his alma mater. In 2006 he was awarded the Europhysics Prize in condensed matter and next year he was honoured with a CNRS Silver medal.
