Alexis Brandeker (born May 18, 1974) is a Swedish astronomer at the Stockholm Observatory and discoverer of minor planets.[7]

In 2003 he acquired his Ph.D. (on Young stars and circumstellar disks) from the Stockholm Observatory. He went on to become a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Toronto for 2.5 years before returning to Stockholm in 2007, where he now works as a research associate at the Stockholm Observatory. He is credited by the Minor Planet Center with the discovery of 4 minor planets in 2000.[1]
