Ana Asenjo-Garcia Wins AMO Early Career Scientist Prize

The theoretical physicist is recognized for her work on light-matter interactions in ultracold atoms.

May 19, 2022

Ana Asenjo-Garcia, a theoretical physicist who studies quantum optics, has been awarded the 2022 Early Career Science Prize from the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics. 

Asenjo-Garcia was selected for the Prize, which includes a 1000 Euro award, for her contributions to the field of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical (AMO) Physics—in particular, for her contributions to understanding fundamental physics associated with light-matter interactions in ultracold atoms and applications to quantum technologies. She has been invited to present her work at the upcoming International Conference on Atomic Physics (ICAP) in Toronto in July. 

Last year, Asenjo-Garcia received a Sloan Fellowship, NSF CAREER Award, and a Packard Fellowship. Learn more about her research at her website.
