These nine intellectual innovators are some of our newest professors and assistant professors. They selected USC Dornsife for the freedom it provides them to think creatively and explore unchartered territory.
Take Jacob Soll, who took a deep breath before telling his now USC Dornsife colleagues, “I really want to do this funky thing where I do research in accounting, but see it as a part of history.” He was thrilled when they replied, “We get it.” Or Scott Fraser, who came to USC from Caltech for the opportunity to expand the imaging technologies he is developing for the heart and eyes that will become crucial devices in treating diseases such as cancer. Or Kate Flint, whose research gives us insight into why we have become so interested in sharing with the world that we just fed the cat.
Read how these enterprising educators are implementing their power to transform.
