I've been making art for as long as I've been making science. In college I minored in painting, but now I use digital illustrations and animations to translate my vibrant, whimsical ideas into the visual world.
I designed, sketched, and led a team of students to paint a mural at the Manhattan Academy for Arts and Language in November 2018

For a paper I published in the journal Cell, Host & Microbe, I submitted cover art in January 2019. The scene shows a community of anthropomorphized bacteria and viruses interacting.
