Donna Strickland '89 (PhD) returned to the University 30 years after completing her PhD to deliver the commencement address for the College of Arts, Sciences, & Engineering. It was that PhD work with her graduate advisor Gérard Mourou on chirped-pulse amplification of lasers that led to them being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2018.

Strickland spoke of the phone call that brought the news of her Nobel, and the place Rochester held, making it possible for her to do that groundbreaking work.
