JILA Fellow Andreas Becker is one of the 11 University of Colorado Boulder faculty to be awarded a 2021 Distinguished Professor title. CU Distinguished Professors are tenured faculty members who give outstanding work in research or creative work and have a reputation of excellence in promoting learning and student engagement in the research process as well as dedicated to the profession, the university, and its affiliates. This year’s honorees will be formally recognized during a board meeting in spring 2022. Only 129 professors at CU Boulder have been given this title since the title’s inception in 1977. 
According to a CU Connections article, Becker is one of the best and most versatile physics professors at the University of Colorado. He is highly regarded and has been named a “Favorite Professor” by the Physics Honor Society four times. Becker has been both a leader in the Department of Physics and at JILA, and is a highly successful graduate student mentor over the last decade.
