Welcome to the 2018 season of our public lecture series, “Frontiers in Science”. As the Dean of The Charles E. Schmidt College of Science, it gives me tremendous pleasure to invite you to explore this showcase of science topics. We have ten speakers for you this year, experts in the fields of Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Marine Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology. We’ve brought them to you from across the globe and right here in our own community.

My hope is that these lectures stir you to deeper learning, explain your world, ignite your discussions, and bring the richness of the sciences to you. I am particularly excited to bring to you three remarkable students that won FAU’s Three Minute Thesis Competition. Join us in April to hear our three champions discuss their work. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting you and sharing my vision for the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science at Florida Atlantic University.

It is never far from my mind that, without your support, we would not have the confidence to plan boldly for our student’s future or to continue the race for scientific excellence and discovery.

Join me as we begin a new exploration of the sciences together!
