Former Executive director, Djerassi Resident Arts Program. In her presentation, Knight shared what was learned during the July 2014 retreat that linked artists and scientists together for 20 days of collegial interaction and exploration. She also discussed plans for Scientific Delirium Madness 2.0, which will take place in 2015.

Knight created the partnership with Leonardo that supported 12-13 artists and scientists to live and work in residence with one another. This work led to several team efforts to secure grants from National Academy of Sciences Keck Futures initiative for work on the Ocean Memory Project, culminating in 1 of 3 Challenge grants awarded in 2018.
