I’m fascinated by human evolution and genomic science. My work explains how genes and ancient bones illuminate human history, how genetics in medicine will propel our future and why basic research is relevant and important. I work directly with scientists to produce original work like interactive eBooks or animations about their research. Here are some examples:
Gene Cross Talk for Coevolution
Produced at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel with evolutionary geneticist Dan Mishmar, this 3 minute animation is about the coevolution of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA.
The Evolution of Human Skin Color
I’m working with Nina Jabolonski, biological anthropologist, on a book for kids based on her research in human skin color. I’m designing and illustrating the book. Take a peek.
eBook for Baylor College of Medicine
Finding de Novo mutations and their role in disease is precision medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. I’m working with clinical geneticist, James Lupski, to make an eBook about exome sequencing to save a young girl.
