About IACS

IACS logo

IACS presently has 13 faculty spanning chemistry, materials by design, condensed matter, astrophysics, atmospheric science, linguistics, nano-science, sociology, applied mathematics, and computer science. The institute began with a transformational $10 million anonymous donation plus matching funds of equal value from the Simons Foundation that enabled Stony Brook University to establish our institute. Our integrated, multidisciplinary team of faculty, students, and staff overcome the limitations at the very core of how we compute, collectively take on challenges of otherwise overwhelming complexity and scale, and individually and jointly define new frontiers and opportunities for discovery through computation.
