Alumni News & Events

  • Andrew Laeuger '19

    Andrew Laeuger '19 graduated from Brookfield Academy just four years ago and has already put together an impressive resume that has led him to researching how our universe operates.
    In June 2023, Andrew graduated summa cum laude from Northwestern University with majors in physics, math, and Northwestern’s intensive Integrated Science Program. As a student at Northwestern, Andrew worked in an experimental physics research group, levitating microscopic particles in powerful laser beams and using those particles to probe our understanding of gravity at a fundamental level.

    Andrew's research experience helped him earn two summer research internships – one at the Air Force Research Laboratory in Albuquerque, and the other at Caltech. There, Andrew worked alongside members of the Nobel Prize-winning Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory collaboration. Outside his academic work, Andrew served as President of Northwestern’s Outdoor Club, tutored students in the Integrated Science Program, and played the violin in Northwestern’s Philharmonia orchestra.
    Andrew is now pursuing his PhD in Physics at Caltech, studying how detections of ripples in the very fabric of space-time itself might elucidate the inner workings of our universe.

  • Dr. Sheil Shukla '11

    Last month, Dr. Sheil Shukla '11 was featured in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for a cookbook he recently published. "Plant-Based India: Nourishing Recipes Rooted in Tradition" shares plant-based recipes. However, what makes it more than a cookbook is that Shukla shares a story. The beginning of the cookbook talks about his experience and why "plant-based" is the term he prefers when in the kitchen. 

    Shukla is an internist at Northwestern University, and finds balance between being a doctor and his love of cooking. You can read the full Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article here, and follow him on Instagram @plantbasedartist, as well as his website

    His cookbook can be purchased here.
