PHYSICS ALUMNA WINS NATION'S TOP RESEARCH AWARD
Physics alumna Caelan Brooks ’21 was named the 2021 recipient of the American Physical Society's LeRoy Apker Award, the highest honor awarded to undergraduate physicists in the United States. Brooks won the award, "for the discovery of distinct dynamical regimes for coherent ultracold atoms confined in a ring-shaped lattice potential; and for developing a statistical model that depicts the formation of phenotypic patterns associated with bacterial biofilm growth." Brooks marks the first student in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education to win the award. She is a native of Bear, Del., and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in physics at Harvard University. Brooks graduated summa cum laude in three years as part of KU's Honors Program.

WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

Low pressure brings periods of rain today, some of it heavy, with a gusty, raw, northerly breeze. Yesterday’s warmth and sunshine is gone in a big way. Highs today in the low-60s. Watch for isolated flash flooding in flood-prone areas. Rainfall totals should be anywhere from three quarters to two inches, with the higher numbers the farther east you travel.
