The Computing + Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department is home to outstanding students and researchers who share a passion for science and engineering, as well as a drive to investigate the most challenging, fundamental problems in computation and information.
We are dedicated to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. CMS is a community that values and celebrates differences among our members and we strive to create an equitable and inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds. Find out more about our commitment and actions here.
- Franca will join Caltech in Fall 2022
Franca Hoffmann's research is focused on the interface between applied mathematics and data analysis, driven by the need to provide rigorous mathematical foundations for modeling tools used in applications.
- Assistant Professor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences and Economics
Eric Mazumdar's research lies at the intersection of machine learning and economics. He is broadly interested in developing the tools and understanding necessary to confidently deploy machine learning algorithms into societal-scale systems. Practically, he applies his work to work to problems in intelligent infrastructure, online markets, e-commerce, and the delivery of healthcare.
- von Karman Instructor in Computing and Mathematical Sciences
Ricardo Baptista’s research is motivated by the need for accurate uncertainty quantification in complex physical systems. He is interested in developing scalable computational methods for Bayesian inference and probabilistic modeling, in particular using measure transport and dimension reduction techniques. Practically, he applies his work to improve predictions and build insights for problems in science, engineering, and medicine.
