This presentation will be held on Wednesday, February 20, at 4:10pm in Room 285, Fisher Science (Bldg. 33). All Cal Poly faculty, staff, students, and members of the community are welcome.  Refreshments will be served.  For more information, contact Kate Kravets in the Office of Research and Economic Development at or (805) 756-5153, or visit the Research Scholars in Residence webpage.
