Marrying computer science (CS) to other fields (X) is transforming how scientists and engineers do research and what they discover. Caltech has achieved unparalleled success with this approach, from the game-changing ideas that led to the chip in your smartphone to transforming online auctions. Your contribution can help us accomplish even more, creating new fields and making lives better.

Garnet Chan appreciates a good challenge. A Caltech theorist who works at the interface of theoretical chemistry, condensed matter physics, and quantum information theory, Chan says he is drawn to scientific problems that have long resisted theoretical study.
“In networks,” says economic theorist Teddy Mekonnen, “how you connect one person to another really matters.” When he came to Caltech as a Linde Postdoctoral Fellow, Mekonnen joined a network designed in a way he had never seen.
