Andrew Mackenzie is a physicist whose research focuses on the study of metallic oxides and unconventional superconductors.

When grown in ultra-high purity form, these materials have proven to be ideal for establishing and observing the spectacular consequences of electron correlation. Mackenzie works in close collaboration with colleagues at Edinburgh and Oxford in the U.K., Cornell and Stanford in the U.S., and Kyoto in Japan.
