Brooklyn College senior LaToya Anderson gave one of the top student presentations at the American Physical Society’s 2024 March Meeting.

Anderson is an associate research analyst at the Flatiron Institute’s Center for Computational Quantum Physics and a senior majoring in Physics and Computational Mathematics.

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.”
