Shanalyn Kiger Kemme and Amit ChakrabartiPorter Professor & Head Amit Chakrabarti Meets with Alumni in New Mexico

Amit Chakrabarti, William and Joan Porter Professor and Head, recently traveled to New Mexico to visit alumni in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Los Alamos.  On his one and a half-day whirlwind tour that took place September 17 and 18, he was able to meet with more than 10 alums, including Shanalyn (Kiger) Kemme, '84 Math & Physics and '85 MS in Physics, and J. David Schneider, '70 MS Physics. 

Dr. Chakrabarti was able to share news of student and faculty accomplishments and provide information on the status of undergraduate and graduate education in the department in addition to learning of the many accomplishments of our K-State alumni in New Mexico. 

J. David Schneider and Amit ChakrabartiAmit hopes to travel to meet more alumni in the future.  In the meantime, we would love to hear from alumni visiting the Manhattan area. 

Our faculty and students want to know what our alumni are doing and how the study of physics has affected their lives. We encourage you to come back and visit us in Cardwell Hall and attend any of the events and seminars listed in the News & Events section of our website and to take a tour of our department. You will appreciate the work of our students, the dedication of our faculty and staff, and the deep sense of community that has filled the hallways of Cardwell for many years.
