Scientific Illustrator


Hamilton, ON

I am a strong believer that communicating science is as important as doing it. During my PhD at McMaster University I was constantly looking for ways to improve my oral presentations to better describe my research to the audience. This is when I realized that using illustrations rather than text makes it a lot easier to communicate my ideas. The use of visual illustrations to demonstrate scientific concepts is such a powerful tool that’s under-utilized in the academic setting. I am very excited to work with the amazing DTC team to change the way science is communicated both in academia and also to the public.
