Dr. Klejda Bega Awarded the APS Blewett Scholarship

The Physics Department would like to congratulate Dr. Klejda Bega as the recipient of the APS Blewett Scholarship. This American Physical Society scholarship supports women who wish to return to work in physics after having had a scientific career break for family reasons.

Klejda received her PhD in particle physics from Caltech in 2004, after which she temporarily left the field. She has been volunteering in Professor Tanya Zelevinsky's lab since last summer, learning new techniques of experimental AMO physics.
