David G. Stork selected as 2023 Djerassi Fellow
Selected as one of six scientists whose work is deeply influenced by the arts.
The Djerassi Foundation was created by Carl Djerassi, former Stanford Professor of Chemistry and "father of the birth-control pill," together with his novelist wife Diane Middlebrook, Professor of English, in memory of Carl's daughter Pamela.
The Leonardo@Djerassi Fellows comprise six international artists whose work is deeply influenced by science, and six scientists whose work is deeply influenced by the arts. These Fellows will spend most of June and July in Residence at the Foundation's pristine 583-acre SIMP Ranch (Sic Manebus in Pace) in the Santa Cruz Mountains. During the residency Dr. Stork will continue his research on computational methods for understanding fine art paintings and drawings, material he teaches in EE12Q, Science, Technology, Art, and which appears in his forthcoming book, Pixels & paintings: Foundations of computer-assisted connoisseurship (Wiley).
