Charles Musgrave (Ms '90, PhD '94)

After earning my Ph.D. in Materials Science in 1994 with Bill Goddard and completing a postdoc at MIT, I started my academic career as an assistant professor at Stanford in a joint appointment between Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering. After 11 years at Stanford I moved to the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder where I am now the department chair and continue my research using quantum chemical calculations to design and investigate new materials and molecules for various engineering applications. I have many fond memories of my years at Caltech, especially of my Ph.D. advisor, who I would like to wish Happy Birthday on the occasion of his 80th birthday this March. Happy birthday Bill!

Maneesh Jain (BS '90, BS '90)

I love building companies. I've been a serial entrepreneur the past 19 years. I've been lucky to have been involved with 4 startups from their inception and to have worked with some great people and teams. My first three startups were acquired by mid-size firms, where I have typically spent the time to drive them to commercial success for their innovative (but fledgling) technologies.

My expertise is in the fields of genomics (research and clinical apps) as well as medical devices. I am always looking for great folks to partner with and to build companies with. It is an incredibly exciting time in the industry, where we can make true impact in healthcare for the next generation and transform the practice of medicine.

Munir Bhatti (BS '90)

I currently make my living as a private investor. This leaves some free time, so I've been volunteering in physics research on campus as well as helping to coach FLL and FTC robotics at the kids' schools. As an investor, my focus in value investing.My wife works at JPL so we're becoming a typical Caltech-JPL household. She's an electrical engineering and enjoys the challenges of designing things fit for the harsh environs of space.We have two children, ages 12 and 9, who enjoy robotics, music, and especially summer vacation.
