I developed a passion for the brain in high school, so I went on to complete a neuroscience undergraduate degree, continuing to study nervous system development (axon guidance) of the spinal cord for my Ph.D. It was in grad school where I developed my passion for the art of communicating data visually, and for simulating complex biological processes with computers. I decided to combine my passion for visualization with my aptitudes for quantitative, analytical thought as an entrepreneur with dual hats as a data scientist and data artist. When I’m not creating custom Jupyter notebook-based data processing scripts for my personal and freelance projects, I’m most likely experimenting with generative design in Processing.
