About Me

Aspergillus.jpg

I specialize in creating data visualizations and illustrations to support scientific reports published in leading scientific journals.
With a PhD in Biology and a degree in Graphic Design, my unique combination of training gives me deep understanding of the data in the visualizations I create.  My work ranges from graphs and illustrations to explain or strengthen an argument to exploratory graphs to help uncover new patterns in a research process.  I also design user interfaces and websites, aimed at both scientific and non-scientific audiences.
I currently work as a visual designer at Harvard Medical School in the research team of Dr. Benoist and Dr. Mathis.

 

Painting has been a hobby of mine for a few years. Click here for a glimpse.
