One scientist seeks a complete understanding of nanowire properties while another designs a solar cell that boosts high efficiency. This is just one example of how researchers in the basic and applied sciences at USC work side-by-side to solve complex problems.
The National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering advocate such transdisciplinary collaboration and USC College faculty are already there.
Many of our outstanding scientists have joined forces with their colleagues in the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and beyond.
Katrina Edwards, Dave Caron, Mark Thompson, Richard Roberts, and Grace Lu are just a few of these USC College researchers leading the way in science’s new frontiers.
