McMaster University will continue to host undergraduate academic activities remotely for the Spring/Summer/Intersession term with only a few exceptions for courses that need student access to specialized equipment.

Theoretical physicist now a 2016 Simons Fellow

Catherine Kallin, Physics & Astronomy, has been awarded a 2016 Simons Fellowship in Theoretical Physics. She was the only Canadian to be named a Fellow in that category. The Fellowship will allow her to spend four months at the University of California, Santa Barbara, conducting research in superconductors at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics. Her work in high-temperature superconductors, as well as what she calls an “exotic” low-temperature superconductor, has applications in the field of quantum computing.
