About Me: Perhaps the first thing to note is that most of you will know me by a former name, Stan Dozier, which was my name at Pascal. A few years after graduation, I changed it back to the name I was born with - Stan Woosley. The second thing, is how often, 45+ years later, I think of those days at Paschal and my many friends there. It is only now that I am raising children of my own that I fully realize how important, and in some sense, priviliged those years were. After PHS, I spent 10 years at Rice University (undergraduate, graduate school and postdoc) and then 3 more at Cal Tech, training as a nuclear astrophysicist. I figured I was one, when I could pronounce it. Since 1975, I have been on the Astronomy Faculty of the University of California at Santa Cruz, where I now live with my wife Petra, who is from Germany, and our two children Mandy (b. 2001) and Willy (b 1999).
