John is responsible for the academic programs of the Institute, including undergraduate summer students, graduate students and relationships with partner universities. He is also the Director of Perimeter Scholars International, a Masters program in theoretical physics run jointly by Perimeter and the University of Waterloo.
My research is in the area of condensed matter theory and statistical mechanics, with a particular emphasis on quantum magnetism and high temperature superconductivity. Working with Catherine Kallin at McMaster, I have been involved in large-scale computer simulations of vortices in unconventional superconductors, studies of frustrated spin systems on kagome and pyrochlore lattices, and the microwave response of high temperature superconductors. Most recently I have have been working on topological superconductivity and quantum oscillations in high temperature superconductors.
