Come hear Sciences faculty discuss their lives and research during an informal conversation with students. A pizza reception will follow in Riddick Hearth.

Bill Ditto has been the dean of the College of Sciences since September 2015, coming to NC State from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He is a physicist whose research focuses on chaos theory, as well as an experienced entrepreneur and university administrator.

Trudy Mackay is William Neal Reynolds and University Distinguished Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at NC State and winner of the 2016 Wolf Prize in Agriculture. Her research on quantitative traits in fruit flies and their application to human genetics led her to develop the Drosophila Genetic Reference Panel, a resource used by researchers all over the world.
