I thrive at the interface between science, engineering, medicine, and art. As a biomedical communicator, I am passionate about using cutting edge discoveries to create dynamic visual stories. I can’t imagine a more fitting way to support innovation, collaboration, education, and informed decision making. By translating knowledge into narratives, my vision is to captivate people, spark their curiosity, and motivate them to share what they learned.
I have a variety of interests and training that help me understand the science behind what I illustrate. I studied anatomy alongside medical students at the University of Toronto, both in lectures and in labs. I understand and admire the structure and function of the human body. I have more than a decade of experience in cell culture and tissue engineering. I am excited by the possibilities ahead, from expansion, to differentiation, to ordered structure, to cell delivery. I have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, where I strived to find better ways to deliver anti-cancer drugs. I researched biomaterials and self-assembly of nanostructures, and used these tools to study molecular targeting and pharmacokinetics.
Science inspires me. In studying biomedical communications, I am learning skills and technology to teach these concepts in more engaging and effective ways. I create resources that make ideas more tangible and memorable.
