Before graduating, JILA graduate student Connor Bice recently received the 2023 Richard Nelson Thomas Award. This annual award is given to the most outstanding graduate student in astrophysics at the University of Colorado Boulder in honor of Dr. Richard Nelson Thomas. Dr. Thomas was one of the founding members of JILA and an influential scientist in astrophysics. 

The JILA astrophysical faculty nominate outstanding students each year and vote to determine the award recipient. JILA Fellow Juri Toomre, Bice's former advisor, presented the award, along with Dr. Nelson's widow, Nora Thomas. Both spoke of Bice's research rigor and dedication to the field of astrophysics. Bice's research focused on activities around m-dwarf stars. Congratulations!
