Denk was among 24 scientists, thinkers, writers, choreographers and other smart people to receive the 600K + MacArthur award.



NY TImes

Here is a list of the 24 MacArthur Fellows as listed by the foundation website. He is in good company:

The MacArthur Fellows work in diverse fields and often across multiple disciplines. This year’s Fellows are –

Addressing pressing issues, such as immigration policy (Margaret Stock), the health care needs of the chronically ill in impoverished communities in the United States (Jeffrey Brenner) and in Africa (Julie Livingston), climate change and food security (David Lobell), and educational achievement (Angela Duckworth)

Translating theory into action to customize treatment regimens for the chronically ill (Susan Murphy), preserve historical audio recordings (Carl Haber), and make new pharmaceutical products by synthesizing natural compounds (Phil Baran)

Pioneering new insights into economic behavior (Colin Camerer), the properties of ultra-cold atoms (Ana Maria Rey), the link between ancient plant life and modern ecosystems (C. Kevin Boyce), planetary science (Sara Seager), materials design (Craig Fennie), the reliability and security of wireless networks (Dina Katabi), and jazz music (Vijay Iyer)

Transforming our understanding of late Roman and medieval Britain (Robin Fleming), classical music and ballet (Jeremy Denk and Alexei Ratmansky), vision and the central nervous system (Sheila Nirenberg), and social identity and visual imagery (Carrie Mae Weems)

Exploring new roles for fantasy, surrealism, and mythology in drama and fiction (Tarell McCraney, Karen Russell, and Donald Antrim) and modern dance in the portrayal of urban communities (Kyle Abraham)

Members of this year’s class join 873 other MacArthur Fellows who have been recognized since the Program began in 1981. The Fellows were selected through a rigorous process involving thousands of expert and anonymous nominators, evaluators, and selectors. The Foundation does not accept unsolicited or outside nominations.

I just watched a fantastic masterclass of his via YouTube. He's insightful and poignant in his manners. I would love to study with him.
Congratulations on this honor, Mr. Denk!!
