Poet and recovering engineer Lisa Rosenberg works from shared territory in arts and sciences. She holds degrees in physics and creative writing, and was a Wallace Steger Fellow in Poetry at Stanford University. Her debut collection, A Different Physics, received the Red Mountain Poetry Prize, released in 2018. Lisa worked as an engineer in the space program, was active in aviation as a private pilot, and later founded a technology marketing consulting practice. In 2017/2018, she served as Poet Laureate of San Mateo County, California.
Widely published and anthologized, Lisa’s poems explore natural and cultural landscapes, the art of making, and the drive to question inherited models. She is creating a series of poly-disciplinary engagements for industry, arts, and education, bringing tools of poetry and science to the urgent discourse on our modes of inquiry and enterprise. She looks forward to continuing this work in a 2020 Djerassi Residency for Scientists and Artists.
