Laura H. Greene, a Swanlund and Center for Advanced Study Professor of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an Associate Director for the Center for Emergent Superconductivity, has been appointed as the chief scientist for the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab), the world's largest and highest powered magnet lab. MagLab has facilities at the University of Florida, Florida State University and Los Alamos.
Greene is an expert in condensed matter physics and is internationally known for discoveries including her studies of Andreev bound states in unconventional superconductors. Her main research areas include studying the physics of highly correlated electron materials in superconductors using a powerful technique called tunneling spectroscopy.
She is an elected Fellow of the American Physical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Institute of Physics, and National Academy of Science.
