Catherine Kallin is a physicist whose research is in the area of strongly correlated electron systems, including high temperature superconductors, frustrated antiferromagnets, anyon, the two-dimensional electron gas in the limit of large magnetic fields and low temperatures, and quantum Hall systems. Much of her most recent work is focused on understanding high temperature superconductivity. She is also interested in vortex dynamics, nanotubes and quantum dots.
