Mia Hu’s research concerns itself with a simple and yet difficult question: Are humans the only intelligent life form in the universe? Hu’s answering of this question manifests itself in the task of trying to find exoplanets that can possibly harbor life. “What we are trying to do is to find another Earth,” she said.

In the past few years, the Doyle Lab has turned increasingly to data science techniques to assist problem-solving in organic synthesis. Researchers are driven partly by a year-old federal initiative that seeks to conjoin data science and chemistry, and partly by the notion that a chemist’s time is better spent exploring new reactions than...

A small drone takes a test flight through a space filled with randomly placed cardboard cylinders acting as stand-ins for trees, people or structures. The algorithm controlling the drone has been trained on a thousand simulated obstacle-laden courses, but it’s never seen one like this. Still, nine times out of 10, the pint-sized plane dodges...
