"Computational Design of Next-Generation Battery Electrolytes" Tom Miller, Professor of Chemistry, is an expert in the simulation and modeling of chemical and biological systems—with focus on solar-energy conversion, enzyme catalysis, membrane protein expression, and the design of improved battery materials. A central challenge in this effort is to understand molecular processes that span vastly different timescales and lengthscales. Miller is thus developing new strategies to leverage massively parallel computer architectures for the analysis of complex molecular systems. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Sloan Research Fellowship, the 2015 American Chemical Society Early-Career Award in Theoretical Chemistry, and the Associated Students of Caltech Teaching Award.
The Caltech Alumni Association held a day-long event to explore the ways in which computational thinking at Caltech is disrupting science and engineering, creating entirely new disciplines with "CS+X". From developing new paradigms for computation—quantum computing and DNA computing—to pushing the boundaries of machine learning and statistics in ways that transform fields like astronomy, chemistry, neuroscience, and biology, Caltech faculty are pioneering new disciplines at the interface of computer science, and science and engineering.
