Strategy in science storytelling

You do the research, I visualize your work.

Your research is crucial and it’s important that you keep up with publications, funding, and positions to continue your work. A picture is worth a thousand words. I translate your high-level concepts into visual information.

I offer scientific figures, effective communication strategies and lucid animations that get funding and journal publications, amplify your presentations, lectures and websites.
