Aleksandr Logunov gained his PhD in 2015 under the supervision of Viktor Havin at St Petersburg State University. After two years as a postdoctoral fellow at Tel-Aviv University and a year as a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, Aleksandr Logunov joined Princeton University in a position of Assistant Professor in 2018. In 2021 he was appointed a full professor at university of Geneva. Aleksandr Logunov joined the department of mathematics of MIT in 2023.

Logunov received, jointly with Eugenia Malinnikova, the 2017 Clay Research Award for their introduction of novel geometric-combinatorial methods for the study of elliptic eigenvalue problems. In 2018 he received the Salem Prize and in 2020 the EMS Prize of the European Mathematical Society. For 2021 he received the Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics – New Horizons in Mathematics.
