CHF welcomes Marcia McNutt, president of the National Academy of Sciences and former editor in chief of Science, to deliver the 2017 Ullyot Public Affairs Lecture.

This annual award and lecture, endowed in 1990 by chemist Glenn Edgar Ullyot, seeks to illustrate how chemistry, biology, and the sciences in general contribute to the public welfare.

Marcia McNutt is a geophysicist and the 22nd president of the National Academy of Sciences. From 2013 to 2016 she was editor in chief of Science journals.

McNutt was director of the U.S. Geological Survey from 2009 to 2013, during which time USGS responded to a number of major disasters, including the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. For her work to help contain that spill McNutt was awarded the U.S. Coast Guard’s Meritorious Service Medal. She is a fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Geological Society of America, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the International Association of Geodesy. Her honors include membership in the American Philosophical Society and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 1998 McNutt was awarded the AGU’s Macelwane Medal for research accomplishments by a young scientist, and she received the Maurice Ewing Medal in 2007 for her contributions to deep-sea exploration.

McNutt received a BA in physics from Colorado College and a PhD in earth sciences from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
