I'm a biomedical communicator (i.e. medical illustrator and media developer) based in Toronto, Canada. I have worked with clients such as Bridgeable, Imagineeringart.com Inc., Conservation Ontario, Pearson Canada, and USquareSoft.
I also have a passion for research -- to better understand how the design decisions that we make as communicators and educators affect the viewer/learner. My research interests lie foremost in the design of games and interactive technologies for educational contexts, particularly in the realms of science and medicine. I completed my PhD in medical sciences in 2018 at the University of Toronto (within the ScienceVis lab), where I investigated the benefit of game design on learning with medical and molecular biology students (visit my research page). My previous schooling includes a Master of Science in Biomedical Communications (2012, University of Toronto) and a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Illustration (2008, Sheridan College).
