BFA Illustration, Parsons the New School for Design

It is namely art that has been the pursuit of my scholarship, but science, medicine, and technology have always informed my practice. I am invested in science fiction as both an osmotic space between science and the imaginative act, and a potential tool for decolonizing knowledge. Much of my current endeavors are in and around the lack of legibility specifically in the field of biology, with attention to bioethics and science philosophy/history. I currently work as an artist with the educational organization iBiology on experimental life science textbooks.
