 I suppose I'm just a little biased, but there are some great people working
on these problems here at MIT.  I'm a grad student here who was faced with a
similar decision as you a year ago.  I would say the best thing for you to
do is to try to find out who is doing work you're interested in.  Some of
the big name schools you'll probably want to look at are MIT, Caltech,
Berkeley, Stanford, and Scripps, but there are people doing great work at
other schools as well.  The internet is a great place to start ... go to the
home pages of the different schools and read about what research is going
on.  Once you have some idea of what kinds of research is going on in
different places, then you can definately ask more questions here.  Feel
free to e-mail me directly if you would like to talk further about this.
