The American Physical Society (APS) has named LaToya Anderson one of the top undergraduate presenters at its 2024 March Meeting in Minneapolis. Anderson is an associate research analyst at the Flatiron Institute’s Center for Computational Quantum Physics and a senior at Brooklyn College.

Anderson’s presentation, titled “Localized Superatomic Wannier Functions for Superatomic Solids,” overviewed her work modeling interactions between clusters of atoms dubbed ‘superatoms’ that mimic the behavior of single atoms.

“We extend our gratitude to the undergraduate presenters for generously showcasing their work,” the APS said in its announcement. “Their presentations explored a diverse range of physics topics, highlighting the valuable contributions and innovative spirit that undergraduates bring to the physics community.”
